The Hydra Performing Arts Festival is a festival for theatre, dance, and music in Kamloops, BC presented by Chimera Theatre in partnership with Actors Workshop Theatre. For our second year, we have an exciting collection of twelve new works by Kamloops artists with a focus on interdisciplinary art and challenging theatrical form. With comedies, dramas, burlesque, puppetry, and shows ranging from all ages to adults only, there's sure to be something for everyone at the Hydra Festival!

We are striving to challenge what theatre is both for artists and audiences. We chose the Hydra because of its multiple heads it represents the many different ways theatre can grow and branch off from one another. Like the Chimera, it represents many different forms coming together and working as a cohesive unit. The festival is being produced in partnership with the Actors Workshop Theatre at Thompson Rivers University.

Doors for all performances open 10 minutes prior to curtain. Shows will start on time and due to the nature of the venue, late comers will not be admitted. All festival tickets are $15 and are being sold in advance through our box office (surcharges apply). Tickets will also be available at the venue with cash or credit one hour prior to each performance.

Don't forget your Festival Button! Everyone who attends Hydra Festival must have a Festival Button ($2). The festival buttons will be required for entry into the festival lounge, the theatre, and will also be needed for special events, workshops, and the closing ceremonies. These buttons will also be sold at the venue prior to each performance. Ticket holders need a festival button AND a ticket to see a Hydra Festival show. The festival buttons help Chimera Theatre Society raise the money needed to put on a great performing arts festival in Kamloops for you!
