READ THE REVIEWS OF WISH:

VUE WEEKLY
“Hillyard and Schulz work so well together that even though their connection is culturally repulsive, it’s hard not to end up rooting for them as a romantic pairing. And it’s that kind of slipperiness and ambivalence that make WISH an exciting and challenging show.”
WISH blends animal rights politics with unconventional love story

EDMONTON JOURNAL
“In Trevor Schmidt's production, on an eerily dark stage — bare save for a knotted rope and a swinging tire — virtuoso performances from Christopher Schulz and the eloquently physical dancer/choreographer Ainsley Hillyard include the graceful sign language choreography of their hands.”
Wish at Edmonton's Northern Light is an uncomfortable love story

AFTER THE HOUSE LIGHTS
“a must-see as Edmonton’s theatre season starts winding down”
Layer upon layer of ethical questions in Wish

Summer Performance Camps for Young People

Northern Light Theatre is delighted to announce:

HE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER

This summer we are pleased to announce the return of Maralyn’s Ryan’s PERFORMANCE CAMP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE and THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER.

This adaption of Mark Twain’s classic story features the hilarious antics of the mischievous Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn whose many adventures have forever thrilled people of all ages! After witnessing a crime, Tom and Huck embark on a string of wild escapades that include a Becky Thatcher, an Aunt Polly, an Indian Joe, as well as a huge gang of characters. The thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love, the cold shivers of an adventure gone wrong, the excitement of  discovering real treasure- scene after scene celebrates the energy and glorious possibilities of youth!

Tom lives adventure to the fullest-it’s true!
And there’s a part in this adventure for you!

Camps for ages 5-17.

Early registration online at www.northernlighttheatre.com or over the phone at (780) 471-1586
