Trinity to host a Year of Lear in 2015!



Between April 16th and 26th of 2015, Trinity United Church will be hosting 14 performances of William Shakespeare’s celebrated “King Lear,” featuring renowned Canadian actors David Fox and Jeff Miller. In doing so, Shakespeare’s timeless work will be made accessible, and Trinity opens its doors in deepened service and hospitality to our community. Look forward to:

  • Our children’s drama program, “the Mustard Seed Players” offering their own adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”!
  • An Adult evening lecture series (Jan 14, Feb 11, Mar 4, Mar 25) to deepen our appreciation of Shakespeare and prepare us for the main event!
  • A night of Shakespearean music and love sonnets on February 14th!
  • A series of workshops for drama students, and high school matinees at Trinity!
  • Trinity’s sanctuary and worship will be enriched with Shakespearean surprises!

Here’s how YOU can be a part of Trinity’s 2015 “Year of Lear”: 


  • Donate some time: We’ll need many volunteers to run practices and events smoothly, and play the gracious host to our many visitors from North Bay and beyond!
  • Donate some money: Any and all donations clearly designated “King Lear” will be recognized as a part of your tax-deductible church offerings. Members of “Trinity Arts” also have patronage packages which offer special recognition and gifts for generous Patrons and Corporate Sponsors—we’d love to hear from you!
  • Purchase a “Trinity Package Deal” before Christmas—which entitles you to attend the lecture series, the Valentine’s Evening, and the performance of your choice for only $75 total! (a 25% discount!)

For more information or to see a “Patronage Package,” please speak to a member of the “Trinity Arts” committee (Nancy or Brad Stenning, Darlene Laferriere, Rod Carley, Michelina Beam, Lisa Blais, or Rev. Ted). With your help, we’ll live up to our Trinity Arts mandate: “To use the many blessings of the Trinity Church family to enrich life and faith through the arts.”
