Royal Bank Supports OSLT

Owen Sound | by Daryl Morris  

RBC is helping out their youth summer theatre camp in Owen Sound.

The Owen Sound Little Theatre is getting more support from the local Royal Bank of Canada branch in its 50th season.

Theatre Manager Aly Boltman says it's a 25 year history with RBC, as the bank held the mortgage on the building.

The theatre was able to pay off the mortgage in 2010, and at the time had approached RBC about making the last payment as a support.

Boltman says the bank couldn't do that, but did donate money to support two of their productions this year -- Office Hours and MacBeth.

Now Boltman says RBC is helping out their youth summer theatre camp, bringing the bank's total contribution this season to $2,250.

Boltman says the youth theatre camps are crucial to the future of the Little Theatre, as the younger volunteers get involved, the more likely they are to stay involved and keep the theatre running.

The summer camp is for youth aged 10 to 18.

There are still a few spots left in the camp, and you can get more details by calling the Roxy Theatre.
