Catch seven plays in three days when Shuswap Theatre presents Theatre on the Edge, July 24 to 26.

The weekend of short plays and live music in a café-like atmosphere features five performances a day, with seven different shows to be seen.

In between performances, theatergoers can enjoy music, delicious food and licensed drink on the patio.

Four theatre productions originate in the Shuswap, with the rest coming from the Okanagan and beyond.

“It’s a fantastic collection of great theatre that we have lined up,” said Shuswap Theatre president Joyce Henderson. “Our local theatre artists are taking the opportunity to try something new such as moving a show to a higher level, or taking on something that they might not otherwise try. And we’re really excited to have three companies visiting with touring productions.”

Among the plays are Kelowna’s Fred Skeleton Theatre Company’s presentation of Christie in Love, an intense drama about serial killer John Christie.

Kamloops’ Saucy Fops is presenting the new comedy Back and Forth and Back, and Katrina Kadoski is touring her musical Cougar Annie Tales, about the life of a legendary pioneer Vancouver Island postmistress. In 2012 her play won Pick of the Fringe and Best New Play in Victoria.

Tickets and information about artists and schedules is available on Facebook or at www.shuswaptheatre.com. Single tickets are $10, with three, five and seven-show passes available.
