An Update From Randy Leslie
Artistic Managing Director Of the Actors Studio
 
 
Hello,
 
I hope this message finds you safe and well.
 
First off, I wish to thank all our patrons for their love, support and understanding while we go through these unprecedented times.
 
It’s encouraging to see that Pfizer and BioNTech announced November 9, that their vaccine candidate against COVID-19 has shown promising preliminary results. The vaccine is one of several that have been preordered by the Canadian government. Bonnie Henry has said we could see it in the early months of 2021. We are very excited to hear this news!
 
Still, with social distancing measures and the ongoing ban on larger public gatherings, it remains evident that our MainStage productions must remain on hiatus.
 
With our current limit of 50 patrons and almost 2000 subscribers, it's simply impossible to run our scheduled season until the time we can gather in our theatre at full capacity. Currently we run for 18 performances max, we would run for over 40 performances to be able to perform for all our subscribers and this wouldn’t allow for any other patrons to enjoy these productions that you all love so dearly.
 
The 2020/21 season WILL happen as soon as we get the “GO” from health authorities. We cannot wait to bring you Amadeus, Legally Blonde, Ghost - The Musical, Sound of Music, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and A Christmas Carol - The Musical.
 
In the meantime we do have a Spectacular Holiday production coming your way to enjoy.
 
A special gift for the season, a family presentation of A Kelowna Actors Studio Holiday Spectacular. This new musical is full of old classics, Christmas chestnuts, memories, laughs and Holiday spirit. It will run December 2 to 19, 2020. (We have recently added 3 additional performances, December 17-19, which have the best availability)
 
The show stars Nathan Flavel, Randy Leslie, Chad Abrahamson, Julia Chambers, Delphine Litke and Heidi Hewitt. 
 
For those who are longing for the in-person experience (audiences of 50 with social distancing) we have put into place several measures to ensure your safety, while maintaining an enjoyable evening at the theatre with or without dinner.
 
For those who wish to enjoy the show in the safety and comfort of your own home, a digital production will be available for this production.
 
We invite you to gather your family around the tree, and screen and enjoy a new holiday tradition with our December show available worldwide.
 
We will continue to bring you the entertainment that you love! As soon as it is safe to gather in larger groups the scheduled season will begin, in the meantime come enjoy our Holiday Spectacular. We ask that patrons please hold on to their credits (if they can do so) until Phase 4 of BC's Reopen Plan and we have a vaccine.
 
Please note that we are still working with minimal box office staff and we will take longer to respond. 
 
Our classes are continuing currently with Alice In Wonderland performing tomorrow for socially distanced audiences, Matilda Jr. and Little Mermaid Jr. are in rehearsals and I will be teaching the ADDAMS FAMILY - Musical in Feb/March 2021.
 
We are keeping our thoughts positive and will return!
 
As always, we appreciate your ongoing support and understanding, and we hope that you and your families continue to remain safe and healthy.
 
Yours Truly,
 
 
Randy Leslie
Artistic Managing Director
