BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT

BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT A HUGE SUCCESS!

The first ever BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT fundraiser was held on Saturday, September 6, 2014 as an “Amazing Race” style scavenger hunt in which Edmonton based theatre groups competed for glory while raising money for their own companies.  Northern Light Theatre was delighted to host sixteen teams of theatre artists with representation from Concrete Theatre, FAVA (Film & Video Arts Society of Alberta), Free Will Players, Grindstone Theatre, Nextfest, Promise Productions, Rapid Fire Theatre, Teatro La Quindicina, Theatre Alberta, Theatre Network, Workshop West Theatre as well as our own three teams- Team Arrgghh (Trevor’s NLT staff team), The Limelighters (Lori’s NLT board team) and Doodle and the Noodles (the NLT patron/ audience team).

The race day served up nothing but clear skies and bright sunshine as the teams raced all over Old Strathcona deciphering clues, solving riddles, and competing in challenges such as icing and selling cupcakes, racing through the Farmer's Market, busking with Taiko drums, copying a Jason Blower painting and even eating a 1000 year old egg (!) The race concluded in a barbeque and party for the whole community as the winners were announced.

BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT was organized to not only raise funds for Northern Light Theatre’s 2014-2015 season but also as a fundraiser for the participating theatre companies who were encouraged to gather their own donations. We are thrilled to announce that in addition to NLT’s funds, the thirteen other Edmonton theatre companies involved raised over $13,000.00 in combined pledges for their own benefit.  Way to the go, Edmonton theatre community!

THE LINEUP

SPACE // SPACE by Jason Craig
November 21- November 29, 2014 (Preview November 20)
PCL Studio in the ATB Financial Arts Barns 10330-84 Avenue

"I wake up as a girl. With girl bits and pieces. And you tell me to just ignore it? I used to be your brother." -Penryn

Brothers Lumus and Penryn have been shot out into space as specimens of the past. In the three years they've been afloat, Lumus has stayed awake to perfect his stand-up routine and Penryn has been in a deep sleep. Now Penryn is awake and things have… shifted. Penryn has girl parts and Lumus' teeth are rapidly falling out. How can they be specimens of the past if things have changed so drastically?

THE PINK UNICORN by Elise Forier Edie
February 20-February 28, 2015 (Preview February 19)
PCL Studio in the ATB Financial Arts Barns 10330-84 Avenue

"How on God's green earth can you be both a boy and a girl?" - Trisha Lee

Trisha Lee, a Christian widow living in a small Texas town, finds herself grappling with fear, confusion and ostracism when her teenage daughter announces she is "gender queer" and is starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school. When the school principal rejects the GSA's application for inclusion as a school club, Trisha must choose sides in her rapidly dividing town.

CHRISTINA / PHILIPPE by Per Brask
May 1-May 10, 2015 (Preview April 30)
Westbury Theatre in the ATB Financial Arts Barns 10330-84 Avenue
Presented as part of the Fringe Theatre Adventures Arts at the Barns Series

"We both know that I want to be a man and you want to be a woman, it doesn't necessarily mean that I want to play head games." –Christina

Queen Christina of Sweden, who dressed and lived as a man, and Philippe, the Duc D'Orleans and brother to King Louis XIV, who dressed as a woman, are locked in a battle of wits and wills. Christina/ Philippe by Per Brask is a sensory event made up of a mixture of music, live singing, and verbatim interviews culminating to answer the ultimate question- "Do you dare to be who you really are?"
