KAMLOOPS - The Western Canada Theatre Company (WCT) is turning 40 and Kamloops Museum and Archives wants to help celebrate. Front and Centre; Western Canada Theatre at 40 is a showcase of costumes, props, videos, interactives and interviews, along with an evolving selection of digitized materials from the fascinating collection of WCT’s records including screenplays, correspondences and promotions.
Front and Centre, which opens Oct. 16 and runs until March 26, derives from a place of relative honour within a theatre: the first row of auditorium seating at centre stage — the best seats in the house. Founded in 1975, the company has rightfully claimed a place at the front and centre of cultural life both within and beyond our region. This exhibition puts their storied past in the spotlight.
As the WCT enters its fifth decade of producing national-calibre live theatre right here in Kamloops, the KMA invites residents to the opening reception of Front and Centre; Western Canada Theatre at 40 on Friday, Oct. 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
