COME SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY THEATRE! 

AT THE 2017 OZONE FESTIVAL

Presented at the 2017 Okanagan Zone Drama Festival
MAY 21, 2017
7:30pm
 Shuswap Theatre
41 Hudson Ave NW, Salmon Arm

"Two nursing home residents, both in their eighties, meet and fall in love, rekindling what might have been a wartime romance. 
Had they previously met somewhere else under different circumstances? Why is their love so troubling for their children? Indeed, the light at dusk is sometimes warmer and more enveloping than that of the midday sun. Characters navigate between being and appearance, between cowardice and dissoluteness. 

The award-winning author of Possible Worlds brings us this poetic and moving meditation on identity, aging, and the nature of memory. What shines through when memory fades away?"

Winner of the 2005 Governor General's Literary Award in Drama and the 2006 CAA Carol Bolt Award 


Starring Mark Trussell, Laurisa DeFehr, George Young, Sharon Wickstrom, Beth Bennett, Shaleen Toney, and Buck Crich

Asparagus Community Theatre (ACT) invites you in…. to the world of Old Time Radio this Halloween season. Join us for a live, dramatized recording of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, performed by ACT actors, musicians and foley artists.

This version of Dracula first aired on CBC’s Stage 49 program in 1949 and was dramatized by the late George Salverson, a prolific Canadian playwright, documentarian and broadcaster. It starred, among others, Lorne Green and Lister Sinclair.

ACT’s 2016 performance is directed by Phelan Gotto and features Mandy Penner, Brodie Muskett, Michael Thomas, Jennifer Blake, Risa Bissenden, Jim Ferguson, Ryan Murphy, Jeunesse Pearson and Mark Trussell. Pianist Cameron Shook and Violinist Roman Blain provide the chilling score with live foley effects by Maryke Simmonds and the cast.

This event is a joint fundraiser with Salmon Arm community radio station, Voice of the Shuswap (CKVS) and is partially funded by a grant from the Community Radio Fund of Canada. CKVS will be recording each performance for an edited re-broadcast at a later date. 

All ages are welcome and Halloween costumes are encouraged. There will be door prizes, goodies, prize for best costume and ACT memberships available to purchase. 
Admission is by donation; $10 is suggested. 
“Count” yourself in and help support ACT as we launch our 35th Season!

Contact actokbc@gmail.com for more information.

And...on Saturday, October 29, Shuswap Theatre in Salmon Arm is also performing a radio play!
