Dear Colleagues and Friends:

The staff of Theatre Alberta is hard at work preparing for this summer's Artstrek and Dramaworks. Registrations are inauspiciously low for both programs, which have been proud mainstays of our theatre community for more than 50 years.

We humbly ask for your assistance in sharing the following information about Artstrek and Dramaworks with your contacts.

Here's how you can help: REGISTER or REFER.

If you are considering one of Theatre Alberta's training opportunities please REGISTER as soon as possible - prior to June 13th if you can. (This will help us properly plan and avoid any cancellations.)

If you know someone who might enjoy our programs, please REFER them right away. Here are some ways to help us spread the word:

SHARE this Facebook post.
RETWEET this Twitter post.
INCLUDE this information in your e-newsletters (contact us for images/text)
FORWARD this email to your contacts and/or members

Jeremy Mason Theatre Alberta Board President
Keri Mitchell, Executive Director

SCHOLARSHIPS are available for both programs for participants in financial need. Links and more information about each program are below.

Thank you for your efforts to REGISTER or REFER and help us ensure the success of Artstrek and Dramaworks this summer. As always, please contact us with any questions or comments – we look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,

Jeremy Mason, President
Keri Mitchell, Executive Director
