The Northwestern Players (grade 11/12 drama students) presented a Promenade Theatre production of The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Anderson in downtown Stratford on December 11, 12 and 13. The production started at Stratford Tourism Alliance, then proceeded to City Hall, Bank of Montreal, Allen’s Alley, and ended at Cafe Ten with a warm complimentary cup of hot chocolate. It was very cold walking the streets from venue to venue, but gave audience and actors a feel of what it would be like to live on the streets (the theme of the play.) We were able to raise $100 for The House of Blessing, as well as some money towards Sears.
Cast members: Maxwell Blair, Niklas Brackmann, Christopher Carter, Mathilda Colins, Brittany Eveleigh, Elena Garcia, Rain Ge, Sarah Hagarty, Jesse Jantzi, Andrea Ortega Portillo, Klaas Raymond, Shayna Robinson, Hannah Shaw, Brittany Streicher, Ezra Wagner, and Stephanie Willmore.
