In the summer of 1979, John Pariselli put an announcement in the North Frontenac News advertising an organizational meeting to be held at Sharbot Lake Public School for the purpose of mounting a theatrical production. At that initial meeting of about fifteen people, it was decided to perform Alice in Wonderland, a play that would allow the group to involve a large cast, make use of the musical experience of members and appeal to a general audience. We performed three nights to sell-out crowds.XXXAs a result of a small profit being made, we had to keep financial records of a sort; Kevin Long agreed to act as Treasurer. John Pariselli acted as President and Artistic Director for the first two years. With high enthusiasm and support from the community, the group expanded rapidly and a second production, Arsenic and Old Lace, was produced in the spring of 1980. XXXThirty-three years later the North Frontenac Little Theatre Company continues to fluorish. In that time the Company has produced sixty-eight shows. Check out 'Past Productions' for photo galleries from all of these shows!
