Upcoming Events

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!
