Project X Theatre will be returning to Prince Charles Park July 9-28 for another season of family-friendly outdoor theatre. X Fest 2018 will feature two plays, including a female led adaptation of The Three Musketeers as well as a fast-paced adventure based on five Robert Munsch stories with The Three Munsch-keteers.
The Three Munsch-keteers follows the adventures of Athos, Porthos and Aramis as they bring to life Munsch favorites such as Moose!, We Share Everything!, Just One Goal!, Wait and See and Where is Gah-Ning?
Director Andrew G. Cooper describes the play “as a nice mix of the new Munsch stories, along with the ones that we grew up with. It’s a super fun show, the actors really bring so much to life.”
Adapted by Kamloops’ own Dušan Magdolen, The Three Musketeers tells the classic Alexandre Dumas tale with a twist.
Director Alyssa Bradac, in her first season with Project X Theatre, says that her favorite part of the show is the fact that the three musketeers are women. “It brought up lots of discussion on what women faced historically and today. We worked hard to tell this story from a women’s perspective. In general, it’s a timely story and I am moved and surprised at how timely it is.”
Tickets are available through Kamloops Live! Box Office located at 1025 Lorne Street or by calling 250-374-LIVE. Tickets for X Fest will also be available at the gates starting one hour before show time. Cash, Visa or Mastercard accepted.
Project X is committed to ensuring everyone in the community can afford to attend X Fest. On July 14 and July 28 , all the tickets available at the door for the 2:00 matinee will be sold on a pay-what-you-can basis so that those families on a limited incomecan see some great theatre too. Tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis beginning one hour prior to show time.

When you’re tired from all the fun, head over to the fire pit and grab a hot dog to roast.
Rainbow’s Roost is a stunning 53-acre property on the North Thompson River just 20 minutes from Downtown Kamloops. Miniature horses Dainty and Bella are the highlight of the petting farm, but you will also see dwarf goats, bunnies, pigs, lambs and silky hens. There’s something for everyone.
