“Theatre on the Edge” Festival Update
Posted on April 9, 2015 in General News
Salmon Arm’s first festival of alternative theatre, will run July 24-26, 2015 – three days of wild and wooly drama, inside our own Shuswap Theatre. With performances starting in the afternoon and running into the evening, and our own Edge Club on site offering food and drink and free outdoor entertainment, we’re envisioning a stimulating, social festival atmosphere for the three days. Theatre artists will be able to meet with each other and audience members to help generate a big theatre buzz around Salmon Arm.
This is the first year of the Theatre on the Edge Festival, and we’re still in process. Registration package and technical specs will be available in April. If you’re interested in finding out more about the festival, or receiving a notification when the package is available, send us an email.
In the meantime, here are some useful bits of information:
Our venue is a fully functional theatre (capacity 150) with lobby, a small backstage dressing room and good sound and lighting capabilities. Tech specs will be available online in April.
Application/registration fee is $200. Performing groups will receive 80% of the box office, less GST and any convenience charges applied to tickets or passes. Groups are guaranteed a minimum of 2 performances during the festival, at least one of them during the evening, with a possibility of more performances.
Tickets for all shows are $10. We will be selling passes for multiple shows at a discounted price. We have an online booking system that charges a convenience fee for advance purchases, and a physical ticket outlet in town. Tickets will also be available at the door.
