A Message from the Board of Shuswap Theatre – 

The Board has initiated a series of member and audience focus groups and surveys and wants you to know we’re listening. If you would like to provide any comments, feedback or suggestions in a confidential (no-name) manner, feel free to use this on-line link at any time. Or  you can drop off a written comment to the wooden mailbox in the upper office to the right of the photocopier.

We thank those of you that have shared with us so far and, with the assistance of Michelle Ambrose Consulting, the Board reviewed the data she has been collecting from members and theatre goers at a full-day Visioning Retreat on May 25th. Members will receive updates as the Board works with this information and seeks a renewed vision for the society moving forward.

The purpose of the Board is to govern the society in such a way that its mission is fulfilled so that it is effective, efficient and financially sustainable. Our Mission:

  • Our passion is to provide our audiences with excellent dramatic entertainment ranging from pure fun to thought-provoking drama.
  • We choose plays appealing to our audience while developing the capacities of our company.
  • Our goal is to entice ever greater numbers of people into the joy of live theatre, whether as cast, crew or audience.

Over the past few years the Board has been working toward being less of a “managing” Board and more of a “visionary” one. In other words we have been developing policy that empowers and guides various groups and individuals to carry on the day-to-day business of running the Theatre, while the Board spends more time considering where we are going and how we can get there. We are looking for ways to spend our time more effectively on the things that really matter, to be forward thinking.
