Triviosity – a Night of Theatre Trivia

Triviosity – a Night of Theatre Trivia

You are invited to join us for a Virtual Theatre Trivia Night on Saturday, January 30 at 7:30 pm!

What’s a Virtual Theatre Trivia Night?

It’s just like an in-person Trivia Night, but we play over Zoom (a video conference system). 

How It Works

We will be formed into teams of four and compete for great prizes. And it will all happen over the Zoom video-conferencing system.  Don’t worry if you’re a Zoom virgin; we’ll lead you through the process. (It’s easy and it will work on your computer, smart phone or tablet.)

This evening is for current Shuswap Theatre members 19 and up. If you’re not current, a modest $10 gets you into the fun and makes you a member at the same time ($7 for youth).  About membership…

Love Letters

Love Letters

Directed by Kim MacMillan

Dates to be announced as COVID permits

When Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, and Melissa writes a thank-you note to ask just why he got her “The Lost Princess of Oz” (answer: she looks like a lost princess), a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born. Both from affluent, East Coast families — Melissa has more money, but Andy has better parents — the friends communicate with each other through angst-ridden boarding school experiences, European adventures, failed marriages, and the ups and downs of career. Despite painful differences which will ultimately tear them apart, they remain each other’s most trusted confidante, and are “true lovers” on paper, if not on the earth.

A.R. Gurney’s Pulitzer Prize nominated Love Letters is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends.

Dead Men Don't Do Radio Plays

By Allison Williams, directed by Julia Body

Did you miss this hilarious radio drama? Or perhaps you would like to hear it again. Well, you’re in luck. It will be broadcast three times on our community radio station, Voice of the Shuswap CKVS 93.7

  • Sunday, December 13 at 2:00 pm
  • Saturday, December 19 at 4:00 pm
  • New Years’ Day in two parts at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm.

Or you can listen to it right here:

Episode One:  Dead Men Don’t Carry Handbags

Episode Two: Dead Men Don’t Jaywalk

Steve Powell is the radio star of the Frank Grayson, Private Eye series.  But in real life he’s not as suave, doesn’t have a way with the ladies and has a habit of narrating his life.  But crimes keep happening around him.  Will he be able to solve the crime and get the dame? 

Enjoy this hilarious spoof on the film noir genre so popular in the 1940’s, complete with foley (sound effects) done right on stage.

Keep Theatre Thriving

Keep Theatre Thriving

Along with much of the planet, Shuswap Theatre will be suffering financially through at least the coming year with drastically reduced revenues.

We area currently applying for a grant to allow us to purchase video recording and streaming equipment so we can continue to entertain the Shuswap (and beyond) with recorded and live streamed events. We always need to do some local fund raising as well and that is how you can help.

If it’s important to you that we keep live theatre a vital part of our community, we invite you to contribute to our Keep Theatre Thriving fund to help us through this season. You will receive an immediate tax receipt.
