A holiday treat for our community

We’re delighted to warm the homes and hearts of Manitobans this holiday season with the digital holiday treat ALL IS BRIGHT.  

Filled with Manitoba artists, and conceived and directed by Artistic Director Kelly Thornton, ALL IS BRIGHT is a love letter to theatre. Brimming with storytelling and song, we come together to celebrate the holidays.

“I’m so happy to finally be able to bring light to Manitobans through art. It’s been exciting to reimagine the art of storytelling through a digital lens. I’m grateful to everyone who contributed to the making of ALL IS BRIGHT, and thrilled to bring some joy to holiday evenings for audiences nestled safely in their homes,” said Kelly Thornton.

ALL IS BRIGHT showcases Manitoba performers sharing socially-distanced songs and stories of the holidays, filmed onstage, backstage and throughout the John Hirsch Mainstage.

This special presentation is free to watch but if you'd like to make a gift of support, we welcome your donation. Thank you!
