Watch plays from our festival on YouTube!

The in-person part of our 2020 Summer Theatre Festival has ended, but did you know that it’s not too late to catch 8 of the 14 plays featured at this year’s festival? We recorded our livestreamed events and they are now available to watch on our YouTube channel. Just go to YouTube and search “Notable Acts” to find them!

That means if you missed our amazing, experimental, poignant and mind-blowing digital mainstage production, Space Girl by Jean-Michel Cliche, you can still watch it, including all the scene variations and different endings offered in this choose-your-own-adventure sci-fi pandemic fantasy. But only for a limited time! Space Girl will be available for online viewing until August 17th.

The other plays available to watch online are the Play Out Loud readings of the winners and runners up in our One Act, High School, and Middle School playwriting competitions, as follows:

Saturday, August 1st: Everything is Here by Devin Rockwell, followed by Wrack and Ruin by Meg Edwards. (One Act runners up)

Thursday, July 30: Out of Water by Madeline Savoie (High School Contest Winner) followed by The Kelpie by Alex Rioux (One Act Winner)

Tuesday, July 28: (in two parts owing to an internet drop halfway through) Myrtle by Axel Kelly Spurles (Middle School Contest Winner) followed by Samantics by Alex Dawson (High School Contest Runner Up) followed by Every Apple in the Orchard by Noah Deas (One Act Winner)

A few notes on the recordings: the livestreams were active for about half an hour before the events began, so you can fast forward that amount of time to reach the start of the shows. Recordings of all plays include post-show talkbacks with the playwright and festival dramaturge Vern Thiessen.

Sound quality varies in some of the recordings. If you find any of them very quiet, using headphones will help enhance the audio.

Enjoy!
