Let’s celebrate together!

15

YEARS

Fifteen years ago, thousands of excited citizens got their first

peek inside River Run Centre. It was a time of great anticipation as hundreds of volunteers came together to help organize a week-long open house. The dream of  Guelph’s own performing arts centre was finally a reality. This fall we invite you backstage again, to mark River Run’s 15th anniversary. Join us on Sunday, September 30th as we celebrate 15 years, behind the scenes. We’ve planned a series of demonstrations and hands-on activities to give you a taste of what it’s like to put on a show. I also invite you to take in our exciting 2012–2013 season of entertainment. Our line-up offers something for every taste, with great savings too, if you pick four or more shows. I look forward to welcoming you to the theatre during this anniversary season.

Wood’s music can be heard on episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and This is Wonderland.

…and sparking a life-long appreciation for live performance Including every child Through Linamar for the Performing Arts, we offer all elementary school children in Guelph (over 14,000) the experience of top-quality performances – not once, but twice each year! That’s 16 times by the end of Grade 8. Admission is free – thanks to generous support.

Offering independence

Keeping it affordable

Through eyeGO to the Arts, we invite high school students to make their own choices. They get to pick any River Run presented show. The price of $5 is hard to beat, and it’s a great way to get together with friends. Last year nearly 700 students did just that.

Our uGO to the Arts program offers university and college students an affordable way to sample the flavours at River Run. A live performance at only $20 makes a perfect launching pad for a special night out. Just ask the 500  students who came last season.
