Kelowna’s New Vintage Theatre Launches First Season


New Vintage Theatre launched their first full season on Saturday, January 26 at a sold out event at The Vibrant Vine which also served as a sneak peek of their first production, Super 8.

“This season reflects our desire to celebrate the innovation of fantastic new Canadian works and to re-imagine theatre classics in new and exciting ways. We are thrilled with how warmly Kelowna has received our company so far and we look forward to producing a full line up of professional plays this coming season which offers something for everyone.”, says Artistic Director Bonnie Gratz

Super 8, the award winning new play by Mark C. Hopkins and Charles Netto launches the season at The Black Box Theatre in July and is followed by large scale productions of Rebecca, the Daphne du Maurier mystery, in October and Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie in February at the Kelowna Community Theatre. The season is rounded out with great for all ages productions of A Christmas Carol and a superhero musical by Canadian Ethan Cole called The Astonishing Adventures of Awesome Girl and Radical Boy which will be at The Black Box Theatre in March 2014. New Vintage will also co-present Hub Artist Collective’s production of The God of Carnage in June 2013 and will be offering the fun, touching comedy Calendar Girls which will feature the company’s advanced acting students in May & June 2013.

New Vintage Theatre is a professional theatre company that was formed in August 2012 with the mandate to create and produce new works and remount the classics in captivating ways. Their commitment to play development can be seen at their monthly play readings and the Playwright’s Hot House, a new play development program for Interior artists, both of which take place at The Pulp Fiction Coffeehouse. The group also offers acting classes for beginning and experienced actors at Rotary Centre For The Arts.
