Neanderthal Arts Festival 2012 Opens Tonight! | July 19th, 2012
Tonight we open! The brass has been polished. The actors, technical staff, designers, promoters, and the directors have all done what they do best. The venue has gathered the house staff and the ushers... what more do you need to put on a festival?
That's you! Yes, you! The audience!
We have a great line up this year and we're very proud of our festival. We've had shows from all over the country these past few years and the audiences keep coming -- and they keep growing, not just in size, but in diversity.
Theatre in Vancouver has had a rough year. We've watched as large theatre houses close and how theatre has been beat up in our entire province for the last few years. This was the reason Neanderthal was created.
To make theatre fun again.
I hope you all come out to support your local houses -- not just our festival but the theatres in your local area. Live performance still matters in a time of digital media. Maybe it matters more. Going to see live performance brings together a group of people. Some people who know each other and some people who don't. They will share a common experience and, hopefully, talk about it immediately afterwards. (Hey, we'll have a BBQ outside!)
So, come on out, Vancouverites. We dare you!
