Battle for the Limelight is
JUST AROUND THE CORNER

Battle for the Limelight

It's a fundraiser for NLT but you get to raise money for your own company too!

In 2014, NLT started BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT to help the entire theatre community raise funds.  Theatre companies and arts groups registered teams to compete in an Amazing-Race style scavenger hunt all over the Old Strathcona area.  Teams could raise pledges for themselves- and they got to keep money they raised!

Now BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT is back for its second year, and it's bigger, longer and harder.

Battle for the Limelight

Pledge Team Trevor! Northern Light Theatre not only organizes the race and hosts the party, but we also compete in the Battle.  Help us to support our 40th Season and make community-wide events like this possible by pledging for Trevor’s Battle Team.  CLICK HERE TO PLEDGE TEAM TREVOR

Volunteer

If you want to stage a battle, you need an army of volunteers.  Come out to play with us.  Volunteers are needed to help run the secret stops along the race site, help make the party happen and much more.  It’s guaranteed to be the most fun you’ve ever had volunteering!

Northern Light Theatre at the Edmonton Fringe Festival

The Portuguese Riding Lesson

The Novus Actors are proud to present The Portuguese Riding Lesson and Other Short Plays by Stewart Lemoine at this year's Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival!

Diabolical debutantes, spooky side-dishes, and other absurdities abound in a collection of fun and zany short plays by inimitable Stewart Lemoine! Take a vivacious frolic with this misfit group of lawyers as they take to the stage once again to benefit Teatro La Quindicina! Delightful!

Princess Confidential: Familiar Melody

Promise Productions presents PRINCESS CONFIDENTIAL: FAMILIAR MELODY at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival 2015.

Armed with only a book of fairy tales, Princess Abigail and Detective Simon set out to find the missing Melody Merchant, but story book characters clash with real life as Simon’s work undercover in the seedy underbelly of the city begins to catch up with him.

Princess Confidential: Familiar Melody is much anticipated sequel to Promise Productions' 2013 Sterling nominated Fringe hit, Princess Confidential.  This film noir fairy tale is sure to thrill ages 6 to 106, and audiences don’t need to have seen part one to catch this caper!

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY ELLEN CHORLEY (NLT Artistic Associate)

“Sometimes we don’t know God’s timing and we have to be at peace with His decisions for our lives, just as I have to be perfectly at peace waiting for my wedding.  But Satan is always whispering in my ear, sowing doubt.”

Every night from 3 p.m. to midnight, fifteen year old Maranatha Graham puts on her homemade wedding dress and hopes that today will be the day her groom Pete picks her up from the Pullman's house, where Daddy sent her to wait. Pete could arrive at any moment. But as her wait wears on, Maranatha has an increasingly difficult time ignoring Satan's whisperings…

THE PASSION OF NARCISSE MONDOUX by Gratien Gelinas, translated by Linda Gabouriau
