KAMLOOPS - Western Canada Theatre launches its 40th season with the fast paced and funny Miss Caledonia, Sept. 10 to 26 at the Pavilion Theatre.

It’s 1955, and Peggy Ann Douglas is hitching her wagon to the pageant circuit in the hope it’ll steer her from her farm to the bright lights of a Hollywood movie set. A play packed with baton twirling, song belting, and some fantastic fiddle playing. Starring Kamloops’ own Holly Lewis, accompanied by Christina Cuglietta on the fiddle and directed by Rachel Peake, Miss Caledonia is for anyone who knows what it’s like to dream big and hustle to make it happen.

This season we’re celebrating WCT’s strong roots in Kamloops and national reach, and Miss Caledonia exhibits both. Also based in Kamloops are the designers: Ross Nichol as the Set Designer, WCT’s Head of Wardrobe Cindy Wiebe as the Costume Designer, and Travis Hatt as the Lighting Designer. Following its run at the Pavilion Theatre, Miss Caledonia then goes on the road to play at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver in October.

WCT began with a dream 40 years ago. Join us as we begin our 40th anniversary celebration of the success of that dream with the very funny Miss Caledonia.
