and perform free, fun, interactive children’s theatre productions! The team this year is Jeffery Daniels the Assistant Director, Ashley Hiibner the Stage Manager and Avery Reid the Booking Coordinator! They will all be acting in the performances, but for now they are busy creating original plays for the summer! This summer is a special one because it is the first time the troupe will have two seasons! There will be 3 shows in July and then a new set of 3 shows in August. That’s a total of six wacky, fun, educational shows! You can see the shows in parks and events in Kamloops and surrounding area from Tuesday to Saturday starting July 1st! Was it mentioned that every show is free to watch? That’s right free theatre! The Rivertown Players are thrilled to perform in the community!

For their schedule and instant updates please follow their Facebook page The Kamloops Art Council’s Rivertown Players – in partnership with Project X. See you in the parks!
