Latitude 53’s Rooftop Patio Series

This summer Edmonton’s downtown rooftop patio party returns alongside a new selection of one-week mini-shows from artists in the Edmonton community. Latitude 53’s Rooftop Patio Series enters its fifth year with a fresh mix of the ingredients that have made it a favourite: guest hosts from the community, delicious cocktail and food selections each week, fine company in Edmonton’s sunny season, and the unmistakeable atmosphere of Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture out on the patio and inside the gallery

Freewill Shakespeare Festival

The Freewill Shakespeare Festival is proud to present another summer of Shakespeare in the river valley, featuringOthello directed by Marianne Copithorne, andTwelfth Night directed by Theatre Network’s Bradley Moss.

Othello: The green-eyed monster of jealousy invades Cyprus as Othello is promoted to General of the Venetian army, and his dejected ensign Iago launches a sinister plot to poison Othello’s mind. As lies of an affair between his wife and lieutenant Cassio unfold, Othello’s jealous rage deepens — if only he knew the true enemy was the best friend at his side.

Twelfth Night: Viola can’t catch a break. She’s been shipwrecked, her brother is missing, she’s disguised as a man for protection, and the guy of her dreams has sent her to woo another woman. Now she’s floating on a tumultuous sea of love that even the saltiest of sea dogs would refuse to sail. What’s a gal wearing a fake, itchy moustache to do?

When: June 30 to July 24

Where: Heritage Amphitheatre, Hawrelak Park

Performances run rain or shine every evening at 8 p.m. except Mondays. Matinee’s at 2 p.m. on weekends.

When: Wednesday, July 13 at 7:00pm

Where: McKernan Community Hall, 11341 78 Avenue (close to the McKernan LRT Station)

Be there to make sure your ideas are heard! 

Please RSVP to Bev.Zubot@efcl.org, or 780-437-2913

Registrants will be sent information on the draft ideas collected by the Community Sustainability Task Force to date.  You can see if you want to build on some of these ideas, in addition to the ideas generated at the spring community league workshop and meetings. 



Living on the Edge

The Edmonton Journal is launching a summer focus called Living on the Edge. The shape of neighbourhoods affects everything from rates of diabetes, to crime, commute times and family life.

Living on the Edge wants to know Edmonton's newer communities, and learn new ways of involving the community in traditional journalism. That means if you have ideas on how to improve Edmonton's suburbs, The Edmonton Journal wants to hear them. 

For more info contact @estolte on Twitter, hashtag #yegedge or email: livingedge@edmontonjournal.com
