Theatre in the Tri-Cities: SHIFT’s 1-Act Festival

Shift One Act Festival Port Moody 2012 Inlet Theatre

When you think about innovative theatre, do you think about Vancouver? The people at SHIFT Performing Arts Society would like to change that. They focus on bringing new and fresh arts experiences to Port Moody and the Tri-Cities. When you attend one of their shows, you’ll see something you’ve never seen before. It’s innovative theatre in the Tri-Cities, and you won’t have to drive downtown and pay for parking.

SHIFT’s 1-Act Festival returns for its fifth run this month. The festival features a selection of plays each under one hour in length. It runs from June 21-23, 2012 at Inlet Theatre in Port Moody. You’ll be treated to a fantastic line-up of emerging artists presenting a variety of original and published short works.
