Raising the Marquee

Saturday March 25, 2023   8 PM   Main Stage

A Fundraiser for the Stirling Theatre’s new marquee


To prepare for the 100th Anniversary of the Stirling Theatre in 2027, we’re raising money to give the theatre a complete facelift and are happy to share the experience with you. Relive the glitz and glamour of the Stirling Theatre’s opening 1927 by joining us for an evening of music and retro radio plays with an AI (Artificial Intelligence) twist.

In 2020, the theatre’s marquee had to be torn down as it was in danger of collapsing. Help us raise funds so we can raise the marquee once again.

Raising the Marquee will entail music from the Roaring 20s and a play reading of a radio show from the same era. The show will culminate with the reading of a radio play that was created by Artificial Intelligence. By using the popular Chat GPT, the creators will ask the AI to create a new radio play to be read by the performers.

After the show, the first one hundred patrons to buy tickets will be invited to the Eugene Burrell Upper Hall for more live music.

The unique show will feature a cast of professional actors including Deborah Tennant – Schitt’s Creek, Murdoch Mysteries and Shazam, and Ryan Whittal – one of the SFT’s  popular Panto performers.

This show is the first in a series of fundraisers aimed at raising funds required to make improvements to the Stirling Theatre to prepare for the building’s 100th birthday in 2027. Join us at the Main Stage, or at home, for this unique performance as we light a beacon that will shine in Stirling for the next 100 years.

The first 100 Studio Audience ticket-holders are invited to attend an After-Show Soirée in the Eugene Burrell Hall. Join us for drinking, dancing and an all-round good time!


Our upstairs and accessible Eugene Burrell Hall bar and concession opens at 7 PM.
Take the lobby stairs or the Stirling Library elevator, next door to the Box Office. Washrooms are on both floors.
