MAKING TREATY 7 CULTURAL SOCIETY – BEAR GREASE CHRISTMAS SPECIALIndigenous Contemporary Arts and Performance
As part of CMR’s commitment to helping make a positive impact in our communities, we regularly partner with non-profit community organizations that align with our values to offer complimentary services to support their efforts.
This fall, we teamed up with the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society, by providing pro bono consultation and design services to create the sponsorship package for their holiday production, Bear Grease Christmas Special.
The Society was formed in 2012 to transfer Indigenous knowledge through story and use contemporary arts and performance to educate, entertain, and forge relationships across cultures and generations.
Bear Grease features an all-Indigenous cast with their humorous rendition of the musical Grease, with an added Christmas twist for the holidays. The show has been playing to sold out theatres in Canada and the U.S. since it launched in Edmonton two years ago. The show will be playing in Calgary for three shows only, December 21st and 22nd at the Flanagan Theatre in The GRAND.
