Stereotype High

Stereotype High

By Jeffrey Harr
Directed by Julia Body
February 24 – March 11, 2017

The Geek. The Jock. The Stoner. The Slut. The Loser. Once you have been given a label, you are stuck with it, especially in high school. In a series of interlaced, touching and comedic vignettes, these “stereotypical” teens fight tooth and nail to reinvent themselves. This play shows that there is nothing more powerful than the teen who stands alone, proud of who he or she is.

Whether you are in high school now or whether it is a distant memory, you will relate to the time of insecurity and the search for identity that Stereotype High reveals. You will laugh out loud as you recognize yourself, your friends or maybe your grandchildren. This is a play for teens and adults.

Watch the trailer created by Roxy and the gang at shuswapevent.com.

Presented by special arrangement with Theatrefolk. * Contains Adult Themes *

The 2016-17 Season

Another season of exciting theatre is upon us and our new season brochure is now available.

The season opened with a bang with the wildly popular Mary Poppins. Next up is a funny and poignant drama, Stereotype High, about the trials and tribulations of being a modern teenager. We will finish off the season with After You, a poignant Canadian memory play in which the past and present intermingle.  

Pick up a season brochure at the theatre or at Intwined Fibre Arts.  More about the season.

Good News for the Hearing Impaired

Good News for the 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.
