Upcoming Production


Get your deerstalker cap on!  The play’s afoot! For the fourth show in Many Hats’ eleventh season we’ve chosen a hilarious modern take on a classic murder mystery by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. “The Hound of the Baskervilles” is one of Doyle’s most enduring stories and “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” is a modern adaptation by master playwright Ken Ludwig.

Ludwig, the award-winning mastermind of comic mayhem, has created a fast-paced mystery-comedy about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Baskerville is directed by Josephine Patterson and produced by Shannon French. Marlena Dolan stage manages.

Cal Meiklejohn and Martin Pedersen headline as super-sleuth Holmes and his right hand man, Watson, respectively. Playing multiple roles are Rob King, Alyosha Pushak, and Kim Russell.

Baskerville  opens September 6 and runs until September 29. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 Sunday matinees at 2:00. (Note that the September 27 performance is sold out)

Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for students and seniors (GST included). As usual tickets can be purchased from our good friends next door at The Nest and Nectar or reserved during their business hours by phoning 250-493-7275. (note that The Nest and Nectar is closed on Mondays.)

There will TWO gala opening nights! First, on Thursday September 6 there will be our traditional opening reception immediately following the performance featuring treats from the Nest and Nectar and wines from our official winery sponsor Play Estate.

THEN on Friday September 7 there will be a reception for opening night number two featuring the most excellent craft brews of The Cannery Brewing Company, more goodies from Nest and Nectar and  door prizes furnished by Andre Martin of our official printing sponsor, Minuteman Press.

GREAT NEWS!  The Cannery Stage will have completely new seats by opening night! Thanks to the City of Penticton, Hansel Aluminum Products, The Cannery Trade Centre, and our dedicated crew of volunteers!

As a consideration for those with sensitivities please refrain from wearing fragrances to the theatre.

The Nest and Nectar will be open Tuesday through Saturday with full dinner service on show nights. And they also have a dynamite Sunday Brunch which has proven extremely popular!

Ryga Festival

Summerland’s Arts Festival – August 30 – September 3 

Inspired by George Ryga


Welcome to the Ryga Festival website! We have over 18 events, including concerts, theatrical performances, workshops, readings, and special events planned this year, from August 30 through September 3, led by our Artistic Director, Heather Davies.

The Ryga Festival, August 30 to Sepember 3, 2017, is over 18 events in Summerland, including jazz, blues, and acoustic concerts, theatre, storytelling and more, showcasing the best of Okanagan talent, and featuring nationally and internationally known performers, led by Artistic Director Heather Davies.

The Festival is inspired by playwright and author George Ryga, who lived in Summerland from 1963 until his death in 1987. Considered by many as Canada’s most important English-language playwright, most of Ryga’s creative output originated from his home in Summerland BC, including his ground-breaking play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, which was published to critical acclaim in 1967 and remains the best-selling Canadian play of all time.
