We want to reassure you that we are complying with the new health regulations set out by the BC government yesterday (Thursday) and that our school remains a safe, healthy and nurturing place for students.
Theatre SKAM is pleased to announce that at our Annual General Meeting on September 25, Dominique Jacobs and Jay Duncan joined our board.

It’s SKAMpede Festival 2020, a summer’s day, and Sadie Fox is on her bike pulling a trailer behind her as she whizzes back and forth between venues. The trailer is stock-full of buckets each with their own purpose from recycling to compost. Sadie is teaching people as she fills them up, giving interesting informational tidbits such as why chip bags are saved for recycling and not garbage (the inner lining can actually be recycled).
“Recycling is economics. Like the stock market, it changes. Think of it as batching,” Sadie says.
Backliners Director Mikaela chats with us about their experience directing a play that'll be livestreamed to audiences, and the challenges and opportunities involved in creating theatre during this time. Check it out!
