Theatre Collective

If you are between the ages of 18-29 and you are interested in starting a Theatre Collective, please contact Shannon Hecker, 250 833-6001. What is a theatre collective? It is a group that meets regularly to focus on sharing the creative genius of its members around all things theatre. The collective might decide to put on an experimental play outside of our mainstage season, or do brief “guerrilla theatre” addressing contemporary issues in public places, or write a play or any number of other activities. The passions of its members determine its directions and offerings.
