Edmonton downstage | 12.14.2015

Hey folks! To spend more time with my family and less time in front of a computer, this will be the last Edmonton downstage for 2015. It’s been a crazy year filled with so many great shows from theatre makers in Edmonton and beyond! Thank you all for reading After the House Lights – happy holidays & we’ll get back to it in 2016!

    • Yule Ave is on 118 avenue this week and it sounds awesome! Free arts events are running all week – check out the schedule to plan out your experience.
      • Definitely be sure to check out Blarney Productions presentation of Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris, running at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts December 15, 16, 17, and 19 at 8:00 p.m. and December 18 at 9:00 p.m.
