Hydra Performing Arts Festival
May 10, 2018 - May 19, 2018
The much anticipated Hydra Performing Arts Festival will be launching in Kamloops May 10 – 19, 2018, at Thompson Rivers University’s Actors Workshop Theatre. Presented by Chimera Theatre, the festival will showcase an interdisciplinary selection of new local theatre productions geared to challenge the way we see theatre.
The performances, which have been selected by a committee, are a collection of works from local playwrights and performance artists, both seasoned and new. From magic and dance to conversational and acrobatics – the Hydra Festival has something to challenge everyone’s perception of what theatre should be, all while having a great time!
In addition to the shows on the main stage, the festival will boast parties, meet and greets, other live performances, and a wrap-up awards gala. This is not an event you’re going to want to miss. Tickets will be available per show or in packages. There’s even a rumor about the chance of prizes…
On the main stage this year will be:
Bike Thief – JEAV Productions
Buferno – Infernol Art Productions
Comedy and Conjuring – Clinton W. Gray
Deep in Roots – Kira Haug and Graham How
Fat Chick Seeks: tales of internet dating – Juli Harland
Magic Cafe – Devon More Music

Each show will run at least twice during the course of the festival, to allow for as many opportunities to see as many shows as possible! The full schedule will be released in the coming months. Pick one or pick them all, you’re sure to find something to be excited about at the inaugural Hydra Performance Arts Festival.
