From starvation to gluttony, the Kelowna theatre scene went nuts over the weekend with a veritable smorgsbord of live theatre productions to choose from. New Vintage Theatre ran their production of Super 8 in the Black Box Theatre (July 17 to 20), Kelowna Actors Studio’s Spamalot opened at their theatre July 17 (review and photos to follow, runs until Aug. 3), Bumbershoot Children’s Theatre started their run of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (BCT July 18 to 28), and the Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival kicked off its festival with [title of show] on July 18 as well.
The Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival (KSTF) has two different shows to offer this summer along with life music on the theatre’s dark days. [title of show] is the musical they’ve opened the festival with. The second show, Private Eyes, opens July 25. Then the two shows will begin playing on alternate nights. Private Eyes, is a relationship thriller comedy about love, lust and the power of deception in which nothing is quite what it seems and [title of show] is a musical about a couple of guys trying to write a musical, hence the rather strange name.
