New Ticket Agent

We’re delighted to announce new members of the Shuswap Theatre Team. Linda Thompson and Jaimie Neilson, owners of RE-Market etc. are our new downtown ticket agents.  You can go there for tickets, subscriptions and gift certificates any time during business hours (10–5 Mon–Fri and 10–4 Sat).  

Jaimie and Linda moved to Salmon Arm about three years ago and opened their business two years ago. In that time it has become a going concern with many regular customers looking for what’s new in their quirky, somewhat retro selection of decor items. They have also become loyal, enthusiastic Shuswap Theatre patrons. 

We hope you’ll drop in to say hi and check out what’s on offer. They’re on Hudson Ave next to the Chang Mai Orchid Restaurant – 121 Hudson Ave NE, (250) 833-6135.

Note: RE-Market will be closed for a week, reopening January 26.

February 21– Mar 7

Two friends fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty decides he wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With a little “subtle redirection” from their wives and a creative solution to a very unusual problem  they find the right track… eventually. Plenty of laughs.
