FINAL CHANCE
TO DONATE FOR 2017

GIVING BACK

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, NLT is pleased to announce that we are now able to send eighteen (18) arts students from Strathcona High School to “Do This in Memory of Me.” We still have a goal of sending 50 students and need your help to make it happen! For every $50 donated, we will send one student to this World Premiere, written by local playwright, Cat Walsh. All donations receive a tax receipt; funds must be received by December 31, 2017 to be eligible for this tax year.

Donations can be made directly through the Northern Light Theatre website, through Canada Helps, or by calling the office at 780-471-1586. Online donations are accepted until midnight on December 31, 2017.

8th ANNUAL ONLINE AUCTION

ONLINE AUCTION

NLT’s annual online auction will take place during the run of “Do This in Memory of Me” in March 2018 and we have already received a number of fun prizes! From gift certificates for Alley Kat Brewery, Float House, Carbon Environmental Boutique, to Pottery by Denise Pridmore – plus theatre gift certificates from Teatro La Quindicina, Fringe Theatre Adventures, Theatre Network and L'UniThéâtre. Concrete Theatre has donated a family pass to the Sprouts Festival and an anthology of plays. We are excited to partner with the company that is also host to our fundraiser in January.

The auction will go live on Monday March 12th and closes Monday March 26th – we look forward to some bidding wars! All funds raised support NLT programming.

THEATRE DISTRICT
HOLIDAY PARTY

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE

Monday December 18th saw NLT join with Fringe Theatre Adventures, the Varscona Theatre Alliance, Shadow Theatre, Walterdale Theatre, Grindstone Theatre, Workshop West Playwrights Theatre, and Theatre Network in hosting an open house for volunteers, patrons, and sponsors. Thank you to all who came out to say hello, and especially those who brought donations of warm clothing. Plans are already being discussed to repeat the event next year and we hope to see even more of you then!

WORST YEAR EVER

WORST YEAR EVER

“Dear Mrs. Roberts,

I have only submitted to your tyrannical request for a report on my summer because I suspect that you intend to subvert my lack of interest into some kind of psychological test. I submit to you in order to reinforce how average my mind actually is. I am totally normal…”

Thus begins Charlotte Miller’s series of reports, a riotous journey through the tumultuous 12th year of our heroine. Join us for this 2 night only event starring NLT Artistic Director, Trevor Schmidt, as Charlotte Miller.

Playing January 26th & 27th, tickets are available for purchase on our website or by calling the office at 780-471-1586. All funds raised go to support NLT programming. Presented by permission of the playwright.
