Miracle Philanthropic Theatre contributes to:
Miracle Theatre creates professional theatre productions for the enjoyment of the region. The Theatre then donates the production and all its proceeds to designated local non-profit groups who participate as beneficiaries and affiliates.
In November 2015 long time theatre practitioners Anne Laughlin and Ted Price launched Miracle Theatre with a production of Miracle On South Division Street. The production was donated to the Children's Programs at the Salvation Army Food Bank and 27 Million Voices, generating $42,294.35 for the two non-profits.
The next season Miracle Theatre produced The Last Romance which opened on Feb. 17, 2017. The production raised $52,144.12 and contributed to the local fight against cancer through the purchase of equipment for Prince George’s new Breast Imaging Centre. The production’s affiliate was Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation.
Their third production, The Fabulous Lipitones opened March 2, 2018. This production's beneficiary was United Way of Northern BC and raised $50,225 to support the basic needs of Prince George's most vulnerable people.
Halfway There opened on February 28, 2019 and would prove to be a landmark show raising $84,036.45 to launch the new Children of Prince George Fund under the trusteeship of the Prince George Community Foundation.
On Valentines Day, February 14, 2020, Miracle Theatre opened The Birds and the Bees to much buzz and local acclaim. This production would result in a donation of $106,264.04 to increase the Children of Prince George Fund to nearly $200,000. Proceeds from the investment of these funds will be granted to organizations and programs to help children in our community.
Due to the COVID pandemic, Miracle Theatre didn't return to the stage until Spring 2022. On March 23rd On Golden Pond opened, culminating in a record donation of $150,151.03 to the Prince George Hospice and Palliative Care Society. Miracle Theatre used these funds to create a permanent endowment for Hospice under the trusteeship of the Prince George Community Foundation.
Miracle Theatre casts professional actors from across Canada under the aegis of Canadian Actors' Equity Association.
