Terrace Little Theatre
You are invited to
Terrace Little Theatre's OPEN HOUSE
Friday, October 26 at 7.30
McColl Playhouse, 3625 Kalum Street
Terrace Little Theatre is BC's longest running continuous community (amatuer) theatre club. It was founded by Loreen McColl in 1953 and has represented the northwest at provincial festivals many times and won numerous prestigious awards.
The "little theatre that could" originally staged their plays in the old community centre and when it burned down a large community fundraising effort helped them secure their current permanent home, the McColl Playhouse on Kalum Street.
Although other community organizations have tried to lure the club to join forces on a bigger space, TLT remains steadfast in its desire to be autonomous, adhering tenaciously to a certain quote, "We may not be big but we're small" (and proud of it). At one point in time there was hope that a new building would be erected and the current one torn down. In the end TLT decided that their friendly ghost Daisy was not interested in a new home and instead made plans to upgrade the building in stages.
After construction of an on-site warehouse the club recently embarked on some renovations to refurbish and spruce up the exterior and interior of their beloved building, formerly a baptist church.
Plans are well underway to mount graphics in the former windows on the outside of the building in time for the season opener in November, "Mending Fences" by Norm Foster and directed by Chris Stone. Next up in February is "Sexy Laundry" by Michelle Rimmel with Alan Weston making his directing debut, hopefully and by popular demand, back as Dinner Theatre.
Come join this lively group - young & old, veterans, newbies, and the "just curious" for an evening of visiting, memories, stories that involve duct tape, refreshments, maybe a little improv and general theatre fun! This is the perfect time to learn more about our vibrant theatre community.
