Feb. 10, 2018

Are you looking for some entertainment? Thinking about trying something different for your next night out?

If so, Cold Lake could have just what you’re looking for. The local Grande Parlour theatre has some of the most culturally-rich and entertaining events in Alberta. In this article, we’ll give you three of our best.

Events and Activities at Cold Lake Theatre

Enjoy the enchanting experience of a live stage show and get involved with these offerings from the Grande Parlour.

1. Creative Workshops

Are you looking for an outlet for your creativity? Fancy honing your acting skills?

Our Cold Lake Theatre has some fantastic adult workshops for aspiring actors, theatre buffs, and those who are looking to try something new. These workshops can help you to improve your public speaking skills, meet new people, and gain newfound confidence.

They’re not just for adults, though. They can be fun for all the family. There are child and youth workshops to inspire young minds to improve their social and creative skills.

2. Brilliant Plays and Musicals

Cold Lake has some of the best theatre productions in Alberta. You can watch classic plays, comedy spin-offs, and musicals that will have you clapping and singing along.

Catch their current production of Nunsense, a musical comedy about the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent. The play focuses on five of the nuns, who arrive home to find that the other 52 have suddenly died after being accidentally poisoned by the cook.

They find themselves strapped for cash without enough left in the kitty to bury the deceased sisters and store them in the freezer while they work out a plan. To raise the money, they decide to put on a production of Grease. As they rush to make enough money while evading the Health Department, lots of comedy antics ensue.

Nunsense is currently showing until May 12th.

3. Murder Mystery Theatre

True crime is having a moment right now, and documentaries, podcasts and books about murder are more popular than ever.

If you or someone you love has a crime obsession, you’ll love Clue Murder Mystery Theatre. Instead of simply watching or listening along to your favourite stories, you can be part of the action yourself with this event.

This fun-packed, immersive experience puts you right in the centre of the action, where you’ll work with friends or strangers to find clues and solve mysteries while the professional actors provide entertainment. If you want, you can even be the main character!

Every murder mystery night is different, so you can come back as many times as you want and solve a new mystery each time! Book your tickets and give it a try.

Visit Our Cold Lake Theatre and Enjoy the Fun

It’s a bit of a jaunt from Edmonton to Cold Lake, but with such great entertainment on offer, it’s worth the drive.

Check out the Cold Lake Theatre box office to see what’s playing and book your tickets. There, you’ll find a list of upcoming events, a seating chart, and a map to help you plan out your trip.

Soon, you’ll even be able to book overnight packages!
