KAMLOOPS - Back for their 14th consecutive year, the Kamloops Arts Council's Rivertown Players will be bringing fun, free children's theatre to local parks and festivals throughout July and August. They have created three original plays, featuring superheroes, forest creatures, and beloved fairy tale characters.
Led by Melissa Thomas of Project X Theatre fame, the team of Celine Majcher, Josh Sunderman, and Erik Stephany will debut their wacky and interactive plays at the Art in the Park celebrations for Canada Day at Riverside Park. After that, their season will be in full swing, with performances rotating between multiple city parks, the Kamloops Wildlife Park, and local festivals such as Ribfest.
"We are all very excited," booking coordinator Erik Stephany says. "We've developed these plays to appeal to everyone, and really look forward to sharing them with Kamloops.”
At Art in the Park on Canada Day, the Rivertown Players will be found performing at the 'unplugged' Kamloops Arts Council performance tent.
A full schedule of performance times and locations throughout July can be found at www.kamloopsarts.ca.
