After the House Lights exists to shine the spotlight on the theatre artists making work that’s innovative and compelling, the presenters giving those works a venue, the funders who believe in those artists and their daring projects, the journalists, podcasters, photographers and bloggers providing feedback and sharing the behind-the-scenes stories, and the audiences that are willing to take a risk and see one of the hundreds of shows staged in Edmonton each year.

After the House Lights is primarily written by Jenna Marynowski. I am an Edmonton-based marketer, theatre-lover and fitness instructor/enthusiast. My addiction to theatre started shortly after I moved to Edmonton and is one of the main drivers of my love for this city. In 2009 I started writing for Sound + Noise, a music and theatre blog founded by Dr. Michael D. MacDonald as a pedagogical extension of his popular music courses, later becoming the Managing Editor. I started After the House Lights in 2013 as one of Edmonton’s first blogs dedicated solely to the theatre community. In 2019, I put After the House Lights on hiatus while I pursue my MBA.
