Revelstoke’s new theatre seeks new name

The Revelstoke Performing Art Centre is in search of a new name.

The committee in charge of the Revelstoke Performing Art Centre is in search of a new name for the new theatre.

Revelstoke’s new theatre has been open since June, and has hosted a number of performances this Fall, including films, dances, and concerts, but now it is looking for a name that will “match our aspirations for a cutting-edge, 21st Century venue presenting a wide variety of performing arts events,” says theatre manager Miriam Manley.

As such, the committee that oversees the centre is soliciting suggestions from the public for a new name.

“The name could be inspired by a historical figure, a landscape feature, or an animal or plant that you feel has some relevance to the performing arts or Revelstoke,” Manley wrote in an e-mail.

If you have an idea, e-mail revelstoketheatre@gmail.com your suggestion, along with your name, phone number and rationale for suggesting the name.

You can also submit your idea by mail to: Miriam Manley, Theatre Manager, Revelstoke Arts Council, Box 1931, Revelstoke, B.C., V0E 2S0
