This year’s concert is a Leonard Cohen Tribute and the funds raised will support the proposed Shuswap Performing Arts Centre. Eighteen talented vocalists and instrumentalists will present twenty-four Cohen songs, some of them sing-along, and along the way you will learn interesting information about his life. Admission is by donation at the door.


One More Chance to See Pack of Lies 

By Hugh Whitemore

Directed by Kim MacMillan

Festival Performance Friday, May 29, 7:30
Powerhouse Theatre in Vernon

The Jacksons are a pleasant, middle aged English couple. Their best friends are their Canadian neighbours, the Krogers. All is blissful in their world until an agent from an unnamed government agency asks to use their teenaged daughter’s bedroom as an observation post to foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area. The Jacksons become more and more distressed as the agent’s demands increase. They are really put to the test when it is revealed that the suspected spies are their closest friends. Should they betray their friends? Should they tell their daughter, who loves Auntie Helen and Uncle Peter? Is their whole friendship built on lies?

Warning – Some strong language

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Tickets available on line from TicketSeller.

Theatre on Edge logoSalmon Arm’s first festival of alternative theatre, will run July 24-26, 2015 – three days of wild and wooly drama, inside our own Shuswap Theatre. With performances starting in the afternoon and running into the evening, and our own Edge Club on site offering food and drink and free outdoor entertainment, we’re envisioning a stimulating, social festival atmosphere for the three days. Theatre artists will be able to meet with each other and audience members to help generate a big theatre buzz around Salmon Arm.

This is the first year of the Theatre on the Edge Festival, and we’re still in process. Registration package and technical specs will be available in April. If you’re interested in finding out more about the festival, or receiving a notification when the package is available, send us an email.
