Theatre SKAM’s fanciest event of the year returns! The Friday Night Feast is an evening full of outdoor performances, fine dining, and delicious drinks. Enjoy first access to SKAMpede shows along with an amazing three-course meal created by Fantastico Bar-Deli.
You’ll arrive at the Bridge West Plaza (close to 11 Esquimalt Road - you won’t miss us) at 5:30pm for a reception with charcuterie and a glass of Prosecco. At 6pm, take you through seven of the performances, then bring you to Fantastico Bar-Deli to enjoy a three course meal while you watch the other three shows.
This is the deluxe SKAMpede experience: no lineups, exclusive first access to all the SKAMpede shows, and delicious food and drinks generously hosted by Fantastico Bar-Deli.
Working with story making, playing with music, movement, artwork and creative drama exercises, students will be warmly encouraged to develop their expressive skills, and confidence. Collaborative group work, dramatic expression in movement and voice, creating simple costumes and props will all be part of this wonderful creative week.
