2017 Zone Festival Roundup:

Theatre BC’s Zone Festivals are now confirmed, with excellent adjudicators and educators in place. An outstanding opportunity to take in community theatre shows throughout the province and acquire more skills to help your own clubs become better at producing plays. This year, TBC also initiated a new Travelling Adjudicator, so clubs in non-Festival zones can still benefit from the education process of adjudication. With at least three clubs being seen by the Travelling Adjudicator, one of those will advance to Mainstage on Friday, July 7 to make an 8-play Mainstage Festival in Vernon this July!

  • CIZ: May 24 – 28, at  PG Playhouse, Prince George, Lauren Brotman Adjudicator
  • FVZ: May 21 – 27, at Coast Capital Theatre, White Rock, Fran Gebhard Adjudicator

Mainstage 2017 in Vernon!

Theatre BC celebrates its 85th Anniversary in 2017 and will be holding Festivals featuring all-Canadian playwrights in the spring. To cap off the Festival season, we’ll celebrate Canada 150 in Vernon, BC with Mainstage 2017 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. This week-long Festival of Best Play winning performances will include workshops and adjudications as BC community theatre enthusiasts celebrate Canada on stage. It’s also Vernon’s 125th birthday, so there will be plenty of celebrating to go around!

Mainstage 2017 will be held June 30 to July 8 – an accommodation information PDF can be downloaded by clicking here.

If you’re preparing a show for your regional zone Festival and are thinking ahead to Vernon, the Performing Arts Centre’s technical specs page can be found by clicking through the links here.

The tentative performance schedule of Best Play winners, by the provincial zones, is as follows:

Evening Performances:
Okanagan Zone on Friday, June 30.
Central Interior Zone on Saturday, July 1.
Fraser Valley Zone on Sunday, July 2.

Skeena Zone on Tuesday, July 4.
Peace River Zone on Wednesday, July 5.
