THE BATTLEFORDS — Will we see you at the wedding? Battlefords Community Players are proud to announce our 2022-23 season beginning in October with a comedy by Canadian playwright Norm Foster.

“Maggie’s Getting Married” features Rebekka Landon, Amanda Gies, Crystal Gilbert, Fraser Glen, Mauri Gagne and Gregory Kwong and everyone is invited to the wedding. The show runs from Oct.18 through to Oct. 29, with two shows only on Tuesdays and six dinner theatre show on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets are available by calling 306-446-3133 or Make sure you have a seat at the theatre as we open our season.

Up next is the production of “Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townwomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of A Christmas Carol.” This show will put you in the festive mood. This show runs from Nov. 29 to Dec. 10 with the same two show-only and six dinner theatre evenings. This show is a bundle of fun — songs, crazy antics and a great evening for a company social, a family gathering or just for you and your partner.

The new year brings two further shows including a light drama called “Strawberries in January” which takes place from March 14 to 25 with the same format and we conclude the season with “Clever Dick” a farce – a tongue-in-cheek spoof which pokes wicked fun at the English class system. There is also a murder to solve. This show ends our season with a run from May 23 to June 3 again with both show-only and dinner theatre evenings.

Four great opportunities to enjoy theatre right here in the Battlefords and you can purchase a package for all four shows and save or purchase one at a time. But don’t wait too long and miss the shows as seating is limited as we work to ensure everyone is comfortable in the theatre.

What else is the club up to? Well, we have an Improv Club operating every Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. at the clubhouse/theatre at 102 – 26th St. in Battleford under the guidance of Karen Bayne. She provides an opportunity to have some fun, learn theatre skills and meet some new friends. You do need to register to participate, so again call 306-446-3133 and we will get back to you.

This fall the theatre will see a whole new lighting system thanks to a number of grants and donations by the community including Battlefords Agency Tribal Chiefs-Community Development Corporation, Associated Canadian Travellers, TheatreSask Inc., city of North Battleford – Community Grant Program and town of Battleford – Community Grant Program. We are so very thankful, as our present lighting equipment is between 20 and 35 years old and expensive to operate. We should see a big savings in our electrical and heat as the new system runs much more efficiently and cooler. The actors and audience will also feel the benefits as the present lights were real heat generators. We are so fortunate to live in a community where this kind of support is available to a non-profit volunteer group like Battlefords Community Players.

Speaking of volunteering BCP is always looking for new members wanting to act or work on productions – directing, building sets, running lights, sound, costumes, makeup and other jobs that make the show a success. However, we are also interested in people who would like to volunteer to host, operate the bar, cut the grass or any number of things that just take a couple of hours on your schedule. Everyone is welcome. Please consider this your invitation to get involved.

See you at the theatre.
