Shuswap Theatre Honours James Bowlby

Shuswap Theatre Honours James Bowlby

Shuswap Theatre took a few minutes during the OZone Festival awards ceremony to present a special trophy to founder and long time member, James Bowlby. James recently stepped down from the Artistic Committee, a post he has held for many years. It gave us pause to reflect on his considerable contributions over many years. Some highlights from the presentation:

  • Driving force behind the founding of Shuswap Theatre
  • Love of period pieces, costumes, sets and beautiful stage pictures that flow into each other
  • Ambitious in many ways – plays chosen, taking on large projects, etc.
  • Major force in the acquisition and renovation of our current theatre building from an old radiator shop
  • Efforts to create opportunities for young people (summer theatre, Salmon Arm Actors Studio).
  • Served as OZone chair and President of Theatre BC.
  • Received the prestigious Eric Hamber trophy from Theatre BC for “outstanding contribution to community theatre in BC over a long period.”
  • Received from the zone, the Ozzie Award for “an outstanding contribution to the Okanagan Zone and to community theatre in BC.”
  • Continues to produce plays for dinner theatre and is preparing a short play for Theatre on the Edge this July
  • Continues as president of the Shuswap Society for Arts and Culture, with the aim of constructing a performing arts centre in Salmon Arm
  • There are very few people who have been more dedicated to the art and practice of community theatre. It has been his life.

Thank you James
