Perfect Pie

By Judith Thompson
Directed by Elizabeth Ann Skelhorne
April 27 – May 12, 2018

Just three more opportunities (Thursday to Saturday) to take in this powerful drama before cast and crew head for the OZone Festival. Here are some comments from patrons:

“Wonderful play. Wonderful actors. Don’t miss this one!”
“Loved it!”
“A gripping performance that sucked me right in (in a good way). Lighting, sound and set all contributed in major ways and the actors were focused and completely believable.”

Two close childhood friends meet for an afternoon of reminiscing.  They have not seen each other for many years, and are now leading very different lives. Their bond, however, remains as strong as ever. As they recall their childhood and turbulent teen years, they revisit the traumatic event that marked them both, and set them each on a different track. This riveting and emotionally charged play shifts from the past to the present, between memories and the truth.

Practical Set Design Workshop

Practical Set Design Workshop

A big thank you to multiple award winning set designer, Eugene Leveque, for offering an excellent all day workshop on set design. Nine participants (some repeat attenders) learned about both the artistic considerations and the practical side of creating (and communicating) sets that contribute to (and don’t detract from) the total audio and visual effect that the director is trying to create.  He brought many pictures and several models of award winning sets to illustrate his wonderful stories. 

Eugene lives in Lake Country and has been a marvellous resource to community theatre groups up and down the valley for a lot of  years. Many thanks, Gene, for adding to our “Gene pool” of local talent.

Thank You Shuswap!!

Comfy Bottoms Project Reaches Target!

You’ve done it! The Comfy Bottoms Project to replace all the fixed seats in our theatre has reached its target of $38,000 and the seats are now on order. Our patrons bottoms will soon be treated to lovely new cushioned seating. They will be roomier, too, than many of our current seats. See the list of all those donors of $250 or more which will appear on a plaque in the lobby.

However, there’s more to do. We realized that it made no sense to replace the seats without replacing the worn, frayed and stained carpet beneath them. So we’re proceeding to replace the flooring, too, at a cost of $6,489. There will be vinyl planking beneath the seats themselves (easier to clean and better acoustics) and industrial quality carpet in the aisles.

So if you haven’t yet made your gift to the Comfy Bottoms Project, please consider making it for the remainder of the project.  As before, gifts of $250 or more will be acknowledged on the plaque in the lobby. All donors will receive a tax deductible receipt.  Details.
