WORST YEAR EVER

Worst Year Ever

"Here we are, yet again. Or here I am, telling you about my terrible holiday. When will you relent Mrs. Roberts? When will you let me suffer in peace? Or in pieces. Whatever.”
~ Charlotte Miller, Age 12

Only a few days remain to get your tickets to see NLT Artistic Director, Trevor Schmidt, share the woes of Charlotte Miller as she presents the events of her Summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring breaks to the in “Worst Year Ever.” We have less than 15 tickets remaining for each evening, so get them before they are gone!

Playing January 26th & 27th, tickets are $20 +GST and are available for purchase on our website, by calling the office at 780-471-1586, or at the door (Cash only; Subject to availability).

Message from Charlotte:
We decided to have a bake sale at my presentation. There will be brownies, Rice Krispie squares, and Twizzlers. Plus juice boxes to wash it down (in case they're dry). Darryl's mom said she's bringing "two bite" brownies – but I’m going to use as many bites as I want. Anyway, hope you come see me. I hear there are some tickets still available.

All funds raised go to support NLT programming. Presented by permission of the playwright.

SEND A STUDENT TO THE SHOW

8th ANNUAL ONLINE AUCTION

Our campaign to send 50 students to see “Do This in Memory” is still ongoing. We are almost halfway there and hope to reach our goal so more students are able to see the show. 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.

Donations can be made directly through the Northern Light Theatre website, through Canada Helps, or by calling the office at 780-471-1586.
