Entitled “The Great Canadian uxperience,” the new show will celebrate our country’s 150th Birthday, in a way that will tug at your heart and tickle your funny bone. Each year, area performers volunteer their time to take part in the show, by singing, dancing, cutting up in skits, playing music or helping backstage. They also choose among the funding applicants, to decide where the money they raise will go. Anyone interested must apply by November 18th, 2016. To be considered, groups must be non profit and create a written proposal, describing the organization and how the funds would be used.
Since uxperience began over 25 years ago, it has donated more than $130,000 to local organizations, including the local hospital, COPE Mental Health Uxbridge, North Durham Hospice, sports facilities, children’s projects, seniors’ programs, the Uxbridge Historical Society, Sunrise Pregnancy & Support Services Uxbridge, the Lucy Maud Montgomery Society and the Uxbridge Public Library, to name just a few. Next year’s donation amount will depend on how much the show raises through sponsors, ticket sales and a raffle.
The 2017 show is being directed by husband/wife team Darrel Sultana and Melinda Delorme. Organizers include; producers Stacey Callaghan and Rita Irwin, Musical Director Cyndie Jacobs, Skit Directors Rick Callaghan and Rich Helms, Dance Director Wendy Dunn and Blacklight Director Tanner Ferris. Anyone who has attended uxperience in the past, will understand how much hard work and passion goes into this production, and it’s all to help our tight-knit community.
To have your organization considered to be a recipient of funds the show raises, email your written application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, the deadline is Friday, November 18th. For more information on uxperience and what’s in store for 2017, visit uxperience.ca.
