July 13th Friday Night Feast


Friday Night Feast is an outdoor evening full of performance, fine dining, and delicious drinks. You'll arrive at The Hub (360 Harbour Road) at 4:30pm in all blacks and begin to serve arriving patrons. They will have some snacks and beverages before they head out on the trail. At this time, we will set-up our dining area for our three-course meal. When patrons arrive back at the venue, we will begin to serve them their meal as artists continue to perform for them. After they leave, we will strike and clean-up!

 

July 14th & 15th SKAMpede


Theatre SKAM's 10th annual outdoor live performance festival which features short shows of dance, theatre, spoken word and more that are suitable for the whole family. 

Audiences travel down the Galloping Goose from show to show by bicycle, rollerblade, electric mobility scooter, skateboard or on foot. Shows are free upon presentation of the SKAM button.

The audience will arrive at The Hub (360 Harbour Rd) where there will be food, hydration and a decoration station. SKAMpeders will register at the check-in tent and receive their SKAM button, decorate their ride and then proceed to the departure gates where they are met by audience wranglers. Audience members will be dispatched on a tour with a map and take in three to four shows before returning to The Hub to get ready for the next tour. 

Performing companies repeat their short shows several times a day for these small audiences. This year there will be chances to see up to 16 shows for free! This takes just over four hours on wheels.

Theatre SKAM will offer one ASL Interpreted Tour and one Described Tour for those with hearing/vision loss. They must register for these tours in advanced. 

 

Theatre SKAM is grateful to live and create on the Traditional Territories of the Lekwungen Peoples, now known as the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations.
