Of all good causes to donate to this Christmas, Tree House Youth Theatre wants you to remember one that challenges young people and keeps them positively engaged.

The non-profit youth theatre group is turning 25 years old in 2013. To stay sustainable and “happily in the green,” Tree House is looking for 25 benefactors to donate $25 a month for 12 months.

Anyone who joins this sponsor club will receive a 2013 calendar and two tickets to the group’s opening night gala in the spring. All donations of $20 or more will also receive a tax receipt.

For more information, call 403-986-0631. Tree House Youth Theatre was recently chosen to present the centennial play for the City of Red Deer’s 100th birthday next year. The original play, Red River Stories, is being written and will make its world premiere in the spring.

The project was funded from a heritage grant received for the city’s centennial celebrations.
