Western Canada Theatre proceeding with all events

Western Canada Theatre says it is keeping an eye on directives from the province regarding public gatherings, and in the interim, encouraging handwashing and taking extra cleaning steps

Western Canada Theater says all events, performances and classes will be proceeding as scheduled despite the ongoing pandemic.

In a release to media Thursday afternoon signed by managing director Evan Klassen and artistic director James MacDonald, WCT said additional cleaning and disinfecting measures will be done to protect public health and patrons will be encouraged to wash their hands.

Those feeling sick are being encouraged to stay at home and anyone choosing to do so can contact the Kamloops Live box office, 250-374-5483, on the day of the performance to arrange for an account credit or exchange for another event.

“Until the province issues a directive against public gatherings, or the closure of facilities, our facilities remain open, with the new measures indicated,” Klassen said in an email to KTW.

The current WCT season has nearly wrapped up. The theatre organization is showing Café Daughter until March 21 at Pavilion Theatre. The final mainstage production will be Chelsea Hotel: The Songs of Leonard Cohen, running from March 26 to April 4 at the Sagebrush. Boy in the Moon will run from April 15 to April 19 and Every Brilliant Thing runs from April 30 to May 9, both at the Pavilion.
