Prince George, B.C. – A local fundraiser aimed at helping needy kids here and with child slavery abroad is off to a good start.

Organizers of the professional theatre production “Miracle On South Division Street” (by Tom Dudzick) have exceeded their pre-performance fundraising goal.play 4

The Christmas comedy has been donated to the Children’s Programs run by the Salvation Army Food Bank and 27 Million Voices.

“We had a goal of raising $10,000 in sponsorships and donations before performances began with the opening of the show this past weekend,” says producer Anne Laughlin. “Last week we received our final sponsorship bringing our pre-performance fundraising to $14,600.”

She says the campaign will now depend on ticket sales to reach their fundrasing target of $50,000.

Director and desinger Ted Price says the initial reaction to the production has been overwhelmingly positive.

“The media and public who attended last week-ends performances were exceptionally enthusiastic about both the comedy and the transformation of ArtSpace into a theatre.”

The production runs nightly until December 6 with matinees on Sundays.

Tickets are available at Books and Company.


Everything about this play is excellent–the acting, the story line (very funny), the set and the tiered seating certainly transforms Art Space. A great kick off to the Christmas season! An experience not to be missed. Kudos to all involved with this production.

Don’t miss this – it is so good – so funny! LOL – unexpected twists and family dynamics. Acting brilliant and huge thank you to Ted and Anne! Fundraising is for the children!

This play is funny, heartwarming and clever! The actors are as comfortable as ever in these roles, and Art Space (!)… it is amazing how this venue has been transformed into a theatre. A must see!

It is truly amazing to see ArtSpace transformed into a full fledged theatre. And all proceeds from this play go towards two amazing charities. Yay!!!
