After prayer and discernment, the Cornerstone Board and Staff have decided to cancel the planned Spring session of classes and the Spring production of "Anne of Green Gables". All people registered will receive a full refund in the next week or so.

We are disappointed but we know that this will not last forever and we have many ideas to keep our community alive during this time apart. Make sure you like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram and stay tuned for some free online content to fill your theatre-loving bucket. 

As a staff, we’ve brainstormed all kinds of fun ideas to pack into later spring or in the summer whenever we can be together again. Keep an eye out for announcements on Master Classes, Camps, Play-in-a-Day, Senior Showcase, and even a Joseph Teen Camp. 

As for now, we will wait for news from Alberta Health Services and look forward to seeing you soon!
