A perennial part of summer fun in the city, the Rivertown Players are back at it, this season with four different plays, each one written by a different cast member.
The troupe, often providing summer employment for theatre students, is organized through a partnership between Kamloops Arts Council and Project X. They perform free family-style theatre at parks and special events.
Krystine Lucas, Brittney Martens, Zack Fernstrom and Kelsey Launier perform Tuesdays through Saturdays, touring around the city. Full information and updates about where they can be found is available on their Facebook page. The productions are overseen by Melissa Thomas of Project X Theatre.
Here are their plays:
