Peace River Zone Theater Festival

Description: 

Tip Your Toque to Canadian Theatre!

The Peace River Zone Theatre Festival is back for 2017 and will have a Canadian twist this year to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday - each of the three productions are Canadian-made.
The winner of the festival will represent our region at the Provincial theatre competition “Mainstage” in July.

Tickets are available online for the individual shows for $12.75 or you can purchase a Festival Pass at the box office for only $33.30.

The Line-up:

May 26 - Late Company (Spectacular Chair Factory) 7:30pm
Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st Century. The parents of a bullied boy, Joel, who committed suicide a year earlier, have his teenage tormentor Curtis and his parents over for dinner. Tannahill writes profoundly compelling characters that live in the slippery grey-zone of believability. Late Company twists and turns with dexterous mastery – just when you think you know where things are going, the story lurches in another direction.

May 27 - Self Help (Bridge to Broadway) 1:00pm
A married couple of second-rate actors re-invent themselves as nationally renowned self-help gurus. Their lives unravel as they try to conceal a body and hold onto their falsely won fame.

May 27 - Salt Water Moon (Stage North) 7:30pm
Jacob Mercers returns to his hometown to win back his former sweetheart’s love. However, she’s getting married in a month. Can he win her back? Should he?
