Community Set To Experience First Live Theatre Performance Since Start of Pandemic

You can enjoy the community’s first live theatre production since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Theatre; Just Because will be performing the ‘Purge’ – a riveting and suspenseful tale of two women set in the following years of World War 2 and the early 1990s.

“The road to returning to the stage has been a challenge, full of abrupt changes, new methods, and a lot of flexibility, but it has also been a road full of creativity, passion, and an overwhelming love for the arts,” said Hanna Fridhed, Director and Producer.

“Being able to create together again, and such a powerful piece as Purge, has been cathartic and rewarding, and we are looking forward to sharing the power of live theatre with the Wood Buffalo audience once again.”

The play is also being professionally filmed and edited by Twisted Gears Studios, a local production company.

This will allow residents to enjoy the show from their own home if they don’t feel comfortable returning to in-person at this time.

“We are so excited and optimistic that Purge will mark the start of a new chapter for the arts in our region, as we move forward from the pandemic,” added Bailey Yarkie, Artistic Director of Theatre; Just Because.

Tickets can be purchased online.

Live performances will take place at Keyano Theatre from July 15 to 17, while virtual on demand performances are available from July 15 to 25.
