After spending four years without a home, Homegrown Theater Production Company has a stage to call its own. They have renovated some of the spaces at the Trinity Lutheran Church and are now calling it their performing arts centre.
This weekend is their opening debut and it’s a good chance to check out theatre production on a budget, as tickets are only 10 dollars to the show.
Director of this weekend’s version of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is Wade Nelson, and he says having somewhere they can have to prepare and perform really takes them to the next level.
“We’ve only done about four productions and were only about four years old, so that’s only a production a year, so this will give us a chance to actually be able to keep our props here, instead of juggling things around from garage to garage, it will give us a chance to advertise and actually just have a location to meet, and practice, rehearse and even brainstorm.”
The past few years they had to make do with lugging around equipment and having little opportunity to practice properly.
“This will allow us to rehearse where we're going to perform, which makes a big difference in how we deliver, last year we didn’t even see the stage until the performance.”
It’s a Wonderful Life will begin at 7 pm this Friday, November 30th, and on Saturday, December 1st.
Tickets can be found at Eventbrite, Gish Law office and at the door.
