Opening Night

Opening Night

By Norm Foster
Directed by Paul Kirkwood-Hackett

Feb 23 – Mar 10

It is the opening night of Richard Hyde-Finch’s latest play, but everything seems to be falling apart.  The script is awful, there is fighting amongst the cast, some of the actors haven’t shown up yet, and Richard’s girlfriend wants to talk about why they aren’t married.  Adding to the mayhem, Ruth Tisdale has won a pair of tickets to the new play.  As it is their 25th wedding anniversary, Ruth’s husband, Jack reluctantly accompanies her to the play even though he would much rather be at home watching the seventh game in the World Series.  But hey – what you do for love, right? All of this adds up to hilarity and chaos as everyone tries to get what they want.  Norm Foster is one of Canada’s best comedy writers. His ability to capture our human follies and foibles make him an audience favorite.

Opening Night is staged by arrangement with Pam Winter, Gary Goddard Agency, www.garygoddardagency.com.

Auditions Held Over

Auditions Held Over

Perfect Pie

Auditions for Perfect Pie are being held over due to poor weather. Yes it snowed a lot!

Director Elizabeth Ann Skelhorne would like to invite anyone who was unable to attend auditions this past snowy weekend (or anyone else) to contact her to reschedule.

Perfect Pie is the story of two women who come together for a day to revisit their mutual past and the trauma that separated them in their youth.

This play calls for two women who can play age 35-45 and two women age 17-21 who can play younger.  The subject matter is mature and the roles are juicy.

If interested please contact Ann as soon as possible at 250.804.2305 or send her an email.

Be sure to come out for our next Comfy Bottoms seat replacement fundraiser.

The Spring for Seats Revue is going to feature a string of short pieces of theatre that we don’t have a chance to do during a regular season. You can expect, among other things, some hilarious comedy sketches from past years.  

Admission is by donation and, to double your pleasure, all revenues will go to our Comfy Bottoms project. Your own bottom will thank you for your generosity.

Theatre on the Edge is Back!

Theatre on the Edge is Back!

Calling all Performing Artists

Salmon Arm’s annual festival of bold and brave theatre is back for it’s fourth season, July 20–22, 2018. In the past three years audiences and artists alike have raved about the entertainment, the friendliness, the technical staff, and the whole ambience of this mini fringe like festival. The performances are stimulating and fun while the drinks, the food and the free entertainment at the outdoor Edge Club (outside on the patio) make for a relaxing yet stimulating way to spend a weekend.

Shuswap Theatre is now welcoming Artist Applications to perform at this year’s Theatre on the Edge. Each of the seven shows performs twice for a total of 14 performances.

As Stuart MacLean used to say, “We may not be big but we’re small.” Come and experience. Deadline for applications is February 28.

The Comfy Bottoms Project

The Comfy Bottoms Project

We hear occasionally from our audience members the wish to have more comfortable seating. Our hand-me-down seats are all at least 40 years old, some even older. A five thousand dollar grant from the Shuswap Community Foundation  has kickstarted the Comfy Bottoms Project which will see us replacing all our seats with brand new ones. 

You are invited to support this project and the bottoms of your fellow theatre lovers, by purchasing one or more seats for $250 each. While gifts of any size will be appreciated, your gift of $250 or more will be acknowledged by name on a plaque in the lobby. All donors will receive a tax deductible receipt. Details.
