The Fifth Annual BATTLE FOR THE LIMELIGHT, Northern Light Theatre’s legendary foot race, scavenger hunt, and fundraiser benefiting the entire Edmonton not-for-profit community returns on May 25th. Participants race to Edmonton landmarks, find clues, complete challenges, solve puzzles, and then battle it out in friendly competition, while celebrating the Edmonton theatre season in this fun-spirited event.
Accidental Humour Co will be participating for our fourth straight year, raising funds to support our upcoming Alberta tour of The Flying Detective, our brand new show premiering in late summer of 2019. This year, we’re looking for your support to help keep us out on the road and sharing our passion for innovative theatre with all of Alberta. Our goal is to raise $1500 to put towards a new trailer that can haul our set, costume, and technical gear to these gigs. This purchase is crucial to the future sustainability of the company’s touring costs, and provides safe storage of our set pieces… including a plane… yes, we built a PLANE.
All support, no matter how great or small, helps to make our theatre accessible not only in Edmonton, but to communities across Alberta, big and small. And, as we do every year, if we reach our goal our team will run in the Battle For the Limelight with an additional challenge/hindrance/ridiculousness to make the competition even more hilarious. Previous years have included running the race with sensory deprivation and riding children’s tricycles. This year is no different!
If we reach our goals, one or more members in our team of 4 will run the race wearing cardboard airplanes custom designed and hand-crafted by our in-house aviation “experts”.
If we reach $500 dollars, one member will be stuck in an airplane. $850 will get two planes. $1250 will get three flyboys/girl. And if you help us reach our goal of $1500, we will ALL run the race wearing cardboard airplanes!

2017 Battle For the Limelight Highlights
Kim Stadelmann, master stage manager, took on the competition practically deaf, Cliff Kelly, the Cowboy himself, competed completely blindfolded, Brent Felzien, the video whiz kid, had to be gagged and silent, and Will Banfield, Jim McCrackin if you’re nasty, was not allowed to use his hands to touch anything.
Wish you cold have been there to see it? Well we wanted to take you with us! So we stuck a camera on Willie’s Banfield body and recorded some highlights.
And thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
