The series was created to highlight shows created by local creatives in music, comedy, performance and other talents.

Audiences were limited and COVID-19 restrictions were put in place.

"we prioritize the health of our audiences, staff, and volunteers above all, and will follow provincial health guidelines. We look forward to welcoming back these performers and companies in the new year, when restrictions ease and our public health situation improves. Stay safe," MacDonald said.

WCT says it will be in touch with ticket holders for the series, but if preferred, the box office can be reached by email at klbo@kamloopslive.ca or by phone at 250-374-5483 between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
