Then & Now: Living Through a Pandemic – 2020/2021
Beginning in the fall of 2020, the DSTS artistic team, led by workshop facilitator Cory Haas, has been holding workshops with members of the community using digital technology. We have gathered local stories through interviews, personal experiences and the media and through the theatre-making workshops, are shaping them into a project we plan to produce in the fall/winter of 2021.

Delta In The 1920s: A Historical Reenactment – 2020 (POSTPONED 2021)
Delta Stageworks’ 2020 project, a reenactment of life in Delta in the 1920s, is on hold until 2021 due to the impact of the current public health crisis. The Reenactment is an arts-based community project involving professional artists working together with community members and groups in a process called collective creation. We create scenes and characters based on real life events and the lived experiences of people in Delta.
With the support of Delta Archives we gather historical documents, newspapers, letters and photographs to recreate scenes and characters. Presentations are held in a historical context so that audiences have an immersive experience.
For this project, Delta Stageworks has partnered with the Delta Heritage Society to provide public workshops, opportunities for youth engagement and a place for diverse community groups to network and shares stories with Delta audiences.
