June 22, 2017 – Thank you for your support with our workshops to date.
We would like to remind everyone to register NOW! To ensure that these workshops are available for Mainstage 2017. If you were thinking you would wait to register at Mainstage when you got here, or forgot because you were busy with your production or another production, or just life, now is the time to come back in, register and ensure that the workshops you are interested in are available for you when you arrive.
We have been doing great with most of our workshops to date, but need a few more registrations for others.
So pick your favourite(s), sign up online, and make sure that you take advantage of these amazing opportunities to learn from the best!
We always hate to see workshops cancelled due to lack of registrants, especially when we are receiving such positive feedback from everyone on all our choices.
Please note that we have changed the format for our Set Design Concept workshop, and unfortunately, our Costumes Design workshop has been cancelled.
We have also added a one-day workshop with David Brotsky which should be amazing for solving technical issues that arise with a production – Solving Technical and Set/Light Design Challenges. Bring your challenges that you have faced and discuss them in a round table scenario. It will be amazing to share and learn from not only Dave but from others about the challenges they face in their specific venues.
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!
