We are thrilled that The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble has been chosen as the Workshop Play at the provincial Mainstage Festival which takes place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre,  July 11 – 16. Prominent director, Kathryn Shaw will watch the play the morning of Monday, July 11, then spend the next two days working with the actors and crew. The play will then be performed again the afternoon of Wednesday, July 13. The cast and crew are delighted to have the opportunity to learn from such a stellar director. Audiences are welcome at both performances.

Extra Salmon Arm Show, Friday July 8, 7:30 pm

To help with the cost of taking the play to Mainstage, it will be performed again at Shuswap Theatre on Friday, July 8 at 7:30 pm. Admission is by donation. If you missed the run or if, as many have done, you want to see it again, here is your chance. Come and support the cast and crew.

The festival is always a great learning opportunity and the week promises to be an amazing experience!

Auditions were held in mid-May for this beautiful musical and most of the roles have been filled. However, we still are in need of a few men. If you are a man and can sing and would like to be part of a wonderful community experience, contact our director, Liz Hobbs.

Operation Facelift

The front of our building has seen better days. The canvas awning was ripped and faded, and has been removed. The 1980’s cedar siding is deteriorating and decidedly shabby. We need to replace it all with something bolder and more beautiful for the next few decades. We want the exterior to be as bold and exciting as what happens inside. The cost of replacement (and improvement) will be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Stay tuned for opportunities to donate to this inspiring project.
