A former manager accused of stealing money from Central Alberta Theatre has chosen a lawyer to represent him.

A former manager accused of stealing money from Central Alberta Theatre has chosen a lawyer to represent him.

Glyn Walters appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday on behalf of William Paul Trefry, who is charged with theft over $5,000.

Red Deer City RCMP allege that Trefry, 44, took between $6,000 and $7,000 from the theatre company at some time during his employment as executive director.

A single count of theft was laid late in May.

In court on Wednesday, Glyn was granted an adjournment to July 6 to review the charge with his client and set out a course of action.

Trefry was first appointed to his post in the spring of 2010, four years after becoming a member of the CAT group. He left his job last fall.

CAT is an amateur theatre group first established in Red Deer about 40 years ago. The company manages the Memorial Centre and adjoining CAT studios and Centre Stage, which opened last fall after a major renovation of the former Uptown cinema.
