All shows performed at Venables Theatre unless otherwise noted.
Our regular season run of When the Wind Blows wrapped up on Saturday, April 30 to great audience reviews. If you missed it, it was a great show, centred on a retired English couple who hopelessly reminisce about World War II in the face of a pending nuclear strike at the height of the Cold War.
This was also our entry in the 2022 Okanagan Zone Theatre Festival, where it was recoginzed for the following awards:

Enjoyed the show. Acting was spot on. The set was well done and the audio-visuals were frighteningly effective. -Scott M. (Oliver)
I've been privileged to watch this extremely satisfying play. A cast that has chemistry and weaves its magic. The story is poignant, it echoes todays international mayhem. This play was written 40 years ago but it could have been yesterday. Thank you Ritchie, Margi, set designers, cast, crew, M/C and myriad behind the scenes supports... - Jill M. (Kelowna)
