The team here at Project X Theatre has spent the last few weeks reimagining our summer festival, trying to find a way to keep our staff and our community safe while still sharing the community-building family entertainment that we love.
Unfortunately, they’ve come to the conclusion that it is simply not realistic to go forward this summer and they’ve have decided to postpone the two productions in X Fest 2020: Theatre Under the Trees, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by Melissa Young and Red Riding Hood by Mike Kenny. They cannot wait to present these two exciting family favourites next summer, just for you, in their happy little corner of Prince Charles Park.
But! They’re not gone, just hibernating. They’re are taking this time to focus on their values and commitment to the development of emerging artists in Kamloops. Look out for these developing projects:
- They’ve launched a new play development program called New Shoots. Plays developed through this process will have some public readings and just might end up on the summer stage in the future.
- They will be opening up some of our mentorship opportunities for emerging artists. If you or someone you know is looking for some tips in design, QLab, puppetry, directing, playwriting, and more, send them our way.
- Lastly, we do have some thoughts about ways to provide you with local entertainment from Kamloops favourites this summer. Keep an eye on your inbox for updates and links as our plans develop.
