Dramatic Times at UCC

  Posted on: May 26, 2004

KAMLOOPS-The play’s the thing at UCC this summer, for people of all ages.

First-ever Summer Production at UCC
Live theatre in UCC’s Actors Workshop Theatre is on the card for June 16th to 19th, when 18 students involved in a play production course currently in session will present University by US director and playwright Jon Jory. University, a comedic series of vignettes showing what students learn on campus outside the classroom, is the first summer show ever to be staged at UCC.

Tickets are $10 per person, available at the box office June 7th to 18th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and at the door each performance night. Shows start at 8:00 pm.

For more information, please contact Wesley Eccleston at 828-5020.

Drama Camp
The younger set will also be on stage this summer when the City of Kamloops Parks and Recreation Department brings a new Drama Camp program to the UCC campus this July. Participants will explore various aspects of drama, including improv and scene-building, reader’s theatre and story drama at each week-long day-camp.

Certified teachers form the UCC School of Education will lead two camps focused on building skills and confidence: the first, for children aged 9 to 12, will be held July 19th to 23rd, while the second, for adolescents aged 12 to 15, will be held July 26th to 30th.

Parents or caregivers interested in finding out more about these camps may call 374-6286. For registration, call 828-3500 or register on line at www.kamloops.ca
