Lester Centre celebrates 30 years

The Lester Centre of the Arts is still going strong, and to celebrate, the theatre company is offering a special season pass

Thirty years after its debut, the Lester Centre of the Arts is still going strong, and to celebrate, the theatre company is offering a special season pass.

Those interested can purchase a season pass, which includes six shows happening throughout the year. The only thing not included will be the seventh show, the Janis Joplin Tribute, because it will be collaborated with other groups.

The pass will cost $100 for adults or $50 for students aged five to 17. A part of the reason the centre has fared so well for 30 years is because of the people in Prince Rupert, said general manager Crystal Lorette.

“We attribute our success to a community full of imagination and pride. It’s amazing for a community our size to have a facility like this,” she said.

There are many perks to purchasing a season pass instead of individual shows, Lorette explained.

“All season passes are reserved seating so your seat will be waiting for you at all shows. And if you’re not able to make all the shows, the passes are completely transferrable so you can give them to your neighbour, your dentist or your friend,” she said.

The climax of the 30th anniversary celebration will be on Feb. 4. The Lester Centre will showcase local talent and host a gala in the evening. That evening is included in the season pass.
