    There's a quilt in everyone's past, handmade, handed down, cherished both for the art and the memories."Quilting Pieces" draws on those memories through stories, music and the quilts themselves. Music from pioneering to the War years. Traditional kitchen music. Knees up fun music. Stories to make you laugh; some may make you tear up, just a little. Times were fun, but they could be tough.

Remember It's Not Magic...

that brings you the quality performances that you see here at SLT. It's many dedicated, hard working individuals who love theatre.

In 2010 SLT completed a $550,000 renovation and made SLT accessible.The good news is there's only $21,000 left owing on the project. Many of you have responded with a generous gift. But we still need help to retire the renovation debt.
