“Legend!” Wraps Up Historic Run
Posted on September 1, 2012 in General News
Legend! represents Shuswap Theatre’s first effort at a joint production with the Secwepemc (Su-kwep-muk) community. We are proud of this collaboration which combines some of the myths and legends of the the Secwepemc with those of the non-native community with its roots in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Two struggling teens, both unsure of who they are and where they belong, are taken on a journey through the great stories that provide both identity and guidance. The production was a wonderful mixture of colour, movement, costuming and projected images as the stories unfolded.
Our thanks to Kenthen Thomas and James Bowlby, the co-writers, and to all the cast and crew who gave it their all throughout the summer. We hope this will not be the last collaboration and that we will see some of these actors active with Shuswap Theatre for some time to come.
