Theatre Ontario’s Inaugural Bowl-a-thon

Bowlathon BowlersTHANK YOU!

The inaugural Theatre Ontario Bowl-a-thon was a huge success and we could not have done it without you!

Thanks to our supporters, participants, Longo’s on Elizabeth Street for the snacks and generous prize donations from businesses in our community. With your incredible support, we raised over $3000 (over 95% of our goal) towards the production costs of Next Generation Showcase and we will keep supporting emerging artists in our positive and vibrant theatre community in Ontario.

Thanks again for everyone involved - and for those who missed out, we hope you join us next year!
