Caravan Farm Theatre is a professional outdoor theatre company based on an 80 acre farm, 11Km NW of Armstrong BC.  Hailed as a national treasure, it is one of Canada’s premiere professional outdoor theatre companies, and has been entertaining audiences young and old, from near and far, since 1978.  There is no theatre building – just the great outdoors. Productions have been staged in nearly every corner of the farm – in a field, in the pines, in the barn or the riding ring. The shows range from classics like Shakespeare and Brecht, original works like Horseplay andCowboy King. Annual productions include a Fall shadow play, a Winter one-act sleigh ride show, and in Summer, a full length musical.  Caravan’s artistic mission is to create meaningful, popular theatre for a broad and diverse audience. They wed narrative with spectacle, high drama with honky-tonk, reflecting the rural experience back to the world with sophistication, complexity, boldness and originality.

The show we’ll see is: The Notorious Right Robert and His Robber Bride by Sean Dixon, Music Written and Performed by Herald Nix. A lonesome, dusty field. The heat of the afternoon sun. A one-horse town. Gritty outlaws. A getaway car. Thundering hooves. This rip-snorting, heart-racing comedy is the story of a resourceful small-town girl who dreams of becoming a newspaper journalist. She has no means of escaping the one-horse town of Chickabiddy, BC, until… she meets Right Robert — a handsome, bank-robbing outlaw who sweeps her off her feet with his charm and wild lifestyle. Together they steal a small fortune and set out to use the money to make a better life. But when their fame runs out, and the law catches up, the road to freedom doesn’t lead where they expected.

Cancellation Policy: full refund minus a $25 administration fee up to August 9th 2012.  No refunds after August 9th, unless you replace yourself on the Trek.
