Rivercity Players

Our mission: enriching the creative culture of the community  through the performing arts.

POTA is excited to announce that their Wearable Art Show will return this fall, and they are currently accepting artist submissions for their fabulous event. This is the major fundraiser of Patrons of the Arts (POTA), under the umbrella of the Campbell River Arts Council.

POTA is a group of individuals that share a powerful commitment to our community of Campbell River BC and the visual and performing artists that reside here. They are committed to providing opportunity, supporting, and cheering on visual and performing artists.

POTA is pulling out all the stops for this amazing fundraising gala. It will be held at the Tidemark Theatre with all the bells and whistles of professional lighting, music, theatre seating, runway into the audience, photography, filming, all supported by the wonderful Heather Gordon-Murphy as stage manager.

Entry to the show is juried, and they will be accepting up to 14 artists. If you are an interested artist, you can download the entry form below. They are looking for wearable art creations that demonstrate inspired vision and innovative use of materials and construction. Top prizes will be awarded for REMARKABLE UPCYCLING, AUDIENCE CHOICE, DEBUT, and possibly more: $500 each! Please submit your entry no later than June 15th, 2022.

The show takes place October 15th, 2022 at the Tidemark Theatre, and you will not want to miss it!

Dennis Hawkins-Bogle will perform in Rivercity Players' spring 2022 production of Norm Foster's Jonas and Barry in the Home starting May 5th, with shows at Rivercity Stage through May 15th.

Meet Dennis...

Most recent production:

\Most recently, I played Peter in Kayak.

What are you enjoying about this play?

I enjoy so much about this play! But I am enjoying the challenge of learning to portray a 67-year-old curmudgeon. Although a comedy, this play explores family dynamics, break-ups, friendship, aging, illness, and death. I also enjoy working with a creative team of actors, a director, and other technical theatre artists.

How do you see your character?

My character is a cranky old man. He grapples with challenges and life situations that many of us encounter, regardless of our age. My character "falls" into an "abyss," and through awareness and encouragement, changes his life to become more engaged and active.

Kelly Senko will return to the Rivercity stage this May as Rosie in Rivercity Players' production of Jonas and Barry in the Home by Norm Foster.

Meet Kelly...

Most recent production:

My most recent production was Rivercity' first play back after the pandemic; Love Letters.

What are you enjoying about this play?

I enjoy so much about this play! But mostly, how relatable it is to real life, and the range of emotions it portrays. From hilarity to sobbing, this play has it all.

How do you see your character?

I see my character as a real person. Someone struggling to care for herself as she cares for her Dad. I'm really enjoying playing Rosie.

The cast of Jonas and Barry in the Home will be taking to the Rivercity Stage starting May 5th. Visit www.rivercitytickets.ca to see available show dates and times.
