This year marks the City of Grande Prairie’s 100th anniversary and as part of the celebrations the city partnered with the GP Century Play Society, a local non-profit specifically established to produce a century themed play. The play, co-written by local writers Kristjanna Gimmelt and Catherine McLaughlin, was titled “Chasing the Dream” and is based on historical research and stories gathered through over 200 interviews. Play director Annie Smith was charged with gathering a team of local volunteers to bring the outdoor theatre event of the century to life.
