Broadway comes to the Similkameen

This summer a taste of Broadway is coming to Princeton with a new professional summer theatre company, River Road Theatre, staging three modern crowd-pleasers.

The new company is kicking off their first season on June 17 with the musical I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, followed by Neil Simon’s romantic-comedy Barefoot in the Park, and concludes with the mystery farce The 39 Steps.

River Road Theatre was founded by Princeton local Chelsea Turner, who previously directed The Mousetrap and Angels in Love with the Princeton Performing Arts Society.

“We’re all thrilled to be bringing this exciting season of shows to both Princeton locals and summertime tourists,” Turner said. “Our focus is fun, accessible entertainment that will leave you with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.”

River Road Theatre’s shows will be running every weekend until Aug. 14, with 7:30 p.m. performances on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays in Riverside Centre. Tickets are are $18, $15 for students, and are available at the Princeton Shoppers Drug Mart or by phone at 250-293-6152.
