Mainstage, the annual provincial theatre festival for community theatre groups throughout B.C., is one of the longest-running theatre traditions in Canada – and this year, Vernon plays host! A culmination of winning plays from Theatre B.C. Zone Festivals, Mainstage is an eight day celebration, and it begins Friday at the Performing Arts Centre.
Adele Kuyek is part of the local team that has been working all hours to ensure this year’s event will be the best n’ busiest ever! In addition to the nightly performances, including the Powerhouse Theatre’s award-winning entry ‘Calendar Girls’ which hits the PAC stage this Sunday evening, Adele shared with Beach Radio that there are numerous workshops available, all promising fun, informative hands-on sessions and encouragement from a handful of experienced veterans of theatre. One of the highlight offerings will be a youth camp for ages 13-18, happening July 5th thru 7th.
