FRC Wedding Singer Theft Recovery

Early in the morning on June 23rd, 2019, the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre, located in northwest Calgary, was broken into and a number of personal items and equipment belonging to the cast, crew, and orchestra of Front Row Centre’s The Wedding Singer were stolen. The cost of the items taken amounts to approximately $10,000 and are not covered through insurance. It is highly unlikely that any of the items will be recovered by the police.  

As Front Row Centre  is a 100% volunteer-run community theatre company, the cast, crew, and orchestra give their time, creativity, and enthusiasm to FRC’s musical theatre productions without any compensation, so this crime is particularly heartbreaking.  

FRC is a non-profit organization so it is not in a position to replace all of the items (as much as we would like to).  The loss of the items (including musical instruments, makeup, gaming systems, laptop computers, and more) is a very hard hit to our hardworking team. 

We are asking you - our community,  patrons and friends - for your help to help us give back to these passionate artists. 

All funds raised will be given to the volunteers impacted by this theft in order to make them a bit more whole again. 

PLEASE NOTE: As we are not raising these funds for FRC, we are unable to issue charitable receipts for this campaign.
