President Sandra Pippus was thrilled with the successes of our 52nd season! Here is what she had to say,
“Our 52nd season was a gas! 7 plays that rocked: Showtune Spectacular, the Good Game, Funny Money, the House at Pooh Corner, Les Miserables, Dry Streak, Cards on the Table. 2 festivals that expanded and twisted the mind: the 9th Reel Shorts Film Festival and the fourth Peace Country Adult One Act Drama Festival. 9 toe tapping concerts: Vishten, Martin Simpson, Jon Brooks, White and Lavin, Sherwood and Condon, Russel DeCarle Trio, the Bergmann Classical Piano Duo, Norman Foote, and James Keelaghan. 2 thought provoking special movie presentations in Pride and the Oscar nominated Force Majeure. Selling tickets for the new Bear Creek Folk Music Festival, Bud Country, and 10 other events. Renting our wonderful theatre for 19 community events. Plus providing equipment, costumes, weapons, Backstage communication system and whatever else was asked of us to the Showcase Centre and schools in GP, at no cost. We continued to advocate for a Regional Performing Arts and Multimedia Centre. And we hosted one surprise wedding proposal – Abby said Yes. Congratulations Abby and Clint. Another Love Match between two GPLT actors.
Thank you to everyone on the 52nd season committee, to the entire GPLT Board, our creative teams, our nearly 300 volunteers, and our hugely supportive sponsors. Thanks to Wayne, Bryan, Jackie, Monica and the rest of our staff. Thank you for 52!”
