The Dewdney Players Theatre Group are thrilled after receiving a cheque from Alberta Culture and Tourism this week.
The group was presented with a cheque by Highwood MLA Wayne Anderson on behalf of the Alberta government for $23,602.
Nicola Payton, president of Dewdney, says the funds are going towards some much needed equipment.
"Mics, headsets, and studio sound cue software so we can do better sounds during our shows."
She explains that their old equipment presented the group with some challenges during their rehearsals and shows.
"The old equipment basically was a CD with all the sounds effects on it and you'd have to stop it and start it and if the actors got their lines wrong then you'd have to skip back a track, so this is all computers and all that stuff which means you can just press a button and if we get the cues wrong then you can just press the same button again and it makes it a lot easier."
Payton adds the group is very grateful for the grant as it will greatly help to enhance their performances.
