OZone Festival 2017
Bookmark this page to keep updated with new information.
Shuswap Theatre is proud to host this year’s Theatre BC Okanagan Zone Drama Festival. Theatre groups from all over the Kamloops-Okanagan area will be presenting their plays on our stage during the week of May 19–27. (The starting date is approximate depending on how many clubs enter.) This is a wonderful opportunity for local audiences to see so many fine productions and it’s a great learning experience for cast, crew and audience alike.
The adjudicator for the festival will be James Fagan Tait. He will present a brief public adjudication immediately after each play and then a more thorough adjudication the next morning at the two hour “coffee critique”, coffee and goodies supplied. The week concludes on Saturday night with a banquet and an Oscar style awards ceremony. The Best Production is selected by the adjudicator to enter the provincial festival, Mainstage 2017, which will be at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre this year.
The invitation has gone out to all clubs in our zone. If you didn’t receive an invitation, here are two key documents:
A Tech Tour will be held at Shuswap Theatre at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 4th for entering clubs to become familiar with the technical resources and limitations of the theatre so that they can plan their sets, lighting, sound, etc. to be compatible.
