Held the last several years in Kamloops, BC, Mainstage is the annual gathering of Best Play winners (or their alternate) from the regional Theatre BC Zone Drama Festivals. Each performance is adjudicated both publicly after the performance, and in-depth the next morning, by an adjudicator – this year, Kathryn Shaw.

On this episode of In The Theatre, delve a bit deeper into Mainstage, as I preview just some of the activities being held as part of Mainstage.

ITT 015: Meet Fran Gebhard, Adjudicator

gebhard-x161Fran Gebhard has been a Theatre BC adjudicator for many, many years and has done so in at least 8 of Theatre BC’s 10 zones.

We had a lengthy chat recently, edited here for your listening pleasure. Fran talked about her work at the Banff Centre; her approach to adjudicating a Zone Festival; a debrief of the 2014 NIZ Drama Festival; her upcoming post-modern Shakespeare production in Victoria, and much more.

Congratulations to Nanaimo Theatre Group’s production team of “God of Carnage” which won numerous awards at NIZ this year, including Best Play and will go on to perform at Mainstage this July in Kamloops.
