By Jeffrey Harr
The Geek. The Jock. The Stoner. The Slut. The Loser. Once you have been given a label, you are stuck with it, especially in high school. In a series of interlaced, touching and comedic vignettes, these “stereotypical” teens fight tooth and nail to reinvent themselves. This play shows that there is nothing more powerful than the teen who stands along, proud of who he or she is. Whether you are in high school now or it is a distant memory, you will relate to the time of insecurity and the search for identity that Stereotype High reveals. You will laugh out loud as you recognize yourself, your friends or maybe your grandchildren.
Presented by special arrangement with Theatrefolk. * Contains Adult Themes *

It’s Valentine’s Day, and Marjorie reminisces aloud about the loss of her husband on the Ocean Ranger and her decision to begin her life anew. Jewel is a powerful and hopeful, one-woman play based on a real life catastrophe–the sinking of the Ocean Ranger oil rig in 1982.
For all the grimness of its subject matter, Jewel is never oppressively maudlin. Moving, frequently funny, it’s a strong affirmation of life, love and the strength within us all. [Linda Moore, Richmond Review]
Jewel is staged by arrangement with Pam Winter, Gary Goddard Agency, www.garygoddardagency.com.
Note: regular Shuswap Theatre tickets and OZone Festival tickets are sold using different systems and prices. You may order either online using your credit card, as well as at Intwined Fibre Arts.

Here are some of the things people are saying about our last show, Mary Poppins:
Mary Poppins was FANTASTIC!!! An excellent show and effort by all involved…we are lucky to have such great theatre in our community. Way to go!!!!
Awesome performance last night! What an accomplishment! Well done to all — actors, stage crew, lighting, construction and all the other myriad behind-the-scenes jobs that go into creating the magic of a show like that.
We, along with our two grandchildren, ages 3 1/2 and 6, were absolutely enthralled throughout the whole December 4th matinee show. Having attended many live theatre performances over the years, we can say, hands down, that this is without a doubt one of the finest productions we have ever seen.
