Ioco Days Festival Kicks off with “Home Town”

Saturday, October 6th, the Ioco Days Festival begins with the local theatre production “Home Town”.


Created by Rebel Haunt Theatre, “Home Town” is a site-specific, audience-interactive play set in the 1930s. The audience moves with the actors through the Ioco townsite; exploring various locations, meeting characters and watching the story unfold. The show incorporates stories from the history of Ioco and Port Moody.

“Home Town” is a great way for locals to get a sense of the community that Ioco residents enjoyed in the 1930s. Written using information and stories from the old “Ioco Times” newsletter, the characters evoke the feeling of the good old days as they explore the remaining heritage buildings and environment at the Ioco town site.

 

 

Shows are Saturday, October 6th and 13th at 1 & 3pm.

Audience members should gather at the Ioco lawn bowling green (Ioco Rd. and 1st Ave.) prior to the show.

Admission is by donation.

The show will go on rain or shine, so come prepared for the weather.
