Theatre on the Edge a Big Success

Theatre on the Edge a Big Success

Theatre on the Edge, Shuswap Theatre’s summer festival of brave and bold theatre, was a big success with a third more tickets sold than last year. Theatre goers loved the ambience of the festival, with outdoor Edge Club musicians performing between plays. Many thanks to the musicians who volunteered their time and talent. Productions were featured from Vernon, Kamloops, Kelowna and Vancouver, as well as the Shuswap, offering comedy, cabaret, puppetry, and one-act plays. 

We are all grateful to Jaci Metivier, festival producer, and her dedicated crew for making it all happen. Thanks also to our patrons for helping to make Salmon Arm a summer destination for theatre. We hope you’ll be back next year.

This year’s lineup.

 

Original Play Reading

Original Play Reading

Mary, Mary

by James Bowlby

What happens when a grad student researching Mary Tudor, comes face to face with her subject? The two women form a close but tense relationship as the student tries to find the truth about the woman who came to be known as Bloody Mary.

Our own James Bowlby has been researching and writing this play for several years and is now ready for a public reading of the script. There are numerous adult roles available. If you would be interested in taking a role, please come to a meeting July 26, at 7 pm at Shuswap Theatre. The script will be acted out, but lines will be read rather than memorized. The public reading will be August 12 after three rehearsals.

For more information email James or call him at 250-832-8383.
