OZone Festival a Great Success

Posted on June 7, 2017 in General News

It’s all over but the shouting. Shuswap Theatre is proud to have hosted a very successful Theatre BC Okanagan Zone Drama Festival. The theme was Canada 150 and theatre groups from all over the Kamloops-Okanagan presented their plays on our stage from May 20–27. This is a wonderful opportunity for local audiences to see fine Canadian plays and it’s a great learning experience for cast, crew and audience alike.
