Our Vision

To enrich the lives of community members through diverse and inspiring live entertainment and opportunities for creative dramatic experience.

"After You" Cancelled

We regret to announce that we have been unable to cast our spring production of After You, planned for April 28 to May 13. After auditions the Artistic Committee reluctantly concluded that the required roles could not be successfully cast, and that not enough time remains to select an alternate play, obtain the rights, conduct auditions, cast the roles and rehearse the play to the standard our audiences have come to expect.

After You was to have been our entry into Theatre BC’s regional OZone Festival, which we are hosting this year (May 20-27). The Board has appointed a creative team (Julia Body, Astrid Varnes, Peter Blacklock and Aidan Sparks) to develop a “creative collaboration” to present to Shuswap audiences and to be our Festival entry. The performance dates will be later than those scheduled for After You. We will have a better picture by the end of March.

We are able to offer After You ticket holders three exchange or refund options. Click here for the details.

Hearing Impaired?

Hearing Impaired?

The Auris Loop hearing assist system has now been installed in the Shuswap Theatre. It will make it much easier for those with hearing difficulties to catch all the dialogue. 

You will need to check with your hearing aid provider to make sure your hearing aids are equipped with a “T-coil” (about 70% are) and get it activated. That’s all there is to it! Your hearing aids will pick up the magnetic signal generated by the loop and suddenly your enjoyment of live theatre will increase.

If you have used the Auris Loop system in our theatre, please send us a brief email to let us know how well it worked for you.
