In a wild spree of “money-liberating”, notorious outlaw criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are sweeping across Edmonton, collecting cash (and cheques and credit card numbers) from businesses, corporations and private citizens. Could YOU be next on their list?
Local law officials say these ‘donations’ are earmarked for Bonnie & Clyde- The Two Person, Six-Gun Musical- the final production of Northern Light Theatre’s 2016-2017 Season, running May 4th-21st, 2017. Chatter around the local watering hole reveals that Parker and Barrow state that they won’t stop until they raise $9,500.00 to fill out their rowdy gang with a live band.
“We’ve already got haunting melodies in this rip-roarin’, wild-ride musical, but it takes a lotta moolah to secure a gee-tar and a skin-tickler with his own set of drums!” says an unnamed source close to the infamous couple.
Sources that have ‘donated’ to the couple’s cause have been left a little lighter on cash but say they feel invigorated by supporting the arts and that they were pleased to hear they could be offered a tax receipt for a donation of as little as a sawbuck or a five-spot.
Time is ticking toward the deadline and the authorities are closing in. Don’t risk getting popped when you come face-to-face with this dangerous twosome. Better to hand it over now- and know you’ve done the right thing for yourself, your family and your local arts community.
