Grendel Group

Gathering, Growing, Giving


GRENDELPlayers is a theatre arts program focusing on expression, team building and inclusiveness. For the participants, this program has accomplished a greater sense of pride and learned skills.  For the community this project has provided a message of inclusiveness and demonstrated that our participants have talents, gifts, and abilities that can be utilized for the good of the community.
This program runs intermittently based on funding, but we are hoping to operate the GRENDELPlayers program again.


"Whole Stole the Queen's Bees", the most recent theatre performance, was a play written and directed by Valerie Laub. The Grendel Players performed this play on Saturday, May 28, 2016 for the general public at St. Joseph's School Auditorium. It was very well received by the audience of over 70 people. GRENDELivery served appetizers, sweet treats and beverages. Check out some photos of the play by clicking here - WHOLE STOLE THE QUEEN'S BEES? -

Thank you to The Kassandra Trust for providing funding for this fun event.


Thanks to funding from the Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council and the Vancouver Foundation, The Grendel Group has presented two additional theatrical productions starring participants of The Grendel Group. 

The first play, entitled "The Story of One Town's Heart", was written and directed by Valerie Laub with input from participants. This play was performed to packed audience at St. Joseph's Catholic School on February 5th, 2011. GRENDELivery also provided appetizers for the evening.

The second play, which took place on November 26th, 2011, was entitled “The Wizard of Never, Never Land”. This play was also written and directed by Valerie Laub and was based on ideas generated by program participants. The general themes of the play were that individuals who are different are still valuable, that we all have gifts, and that kindness rehabilitates. It was structured so that people with differing abilities could take part, revealing their talents to both the larger community and to themselves. The participants were involved in various ways: as actors (with or without lines to memorize); as creators of the set, props and costumes; or as musicians.
