salCOMMThank you to the Salmar Community Association!

Shuswap Theatre recently received $1000 from the Salmar Community Association to purchase a “anti-pigeon” special netting to fit under the awning at the front of the building, above the entrance to eliminate the possibility of someone being pooped on as they come and go from the building. The netting also means less cleaning of the sidewalk below.  Thank you for this very necessary netting.


Thank you to The Shuswap Community Foundation!

Shuswap Theatre received an $1800 grant from the Shuswap Community Foundation and the Geoff and Judith Benson Endowment Fund. The monies donated will be used to buy new audio visual equipment to better communicate with the Backstage/dressing room to lighting/sound booth and Front of House.  The quality of our shows continues to improve with upgrades such as this and we could not do it without the support of the Foundation and the Bensons.

Cilla Budda hanging new blacksShuswap Theatre gratefully acknowledges the support of the City of Salmon Arm with a recent grant of $2500 to purchase new blacks. Ten years ago we replaced our blacks with factory seconds and over time, they have seen much wear and tear from many productions and events.

Stage Blacks are made of a heavy, fire retardant material in accordance with National and BC Fire codes. They are also an unusual size – so the construction makes them even more expensive. The Grant In-aid Committee acknowledged “the contribution the Theatre Society makes to the cultural fabric* of the community.”
