This year Stage North entered Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad and Death and the Maiden. The Spectacular Chair Factory entered Dog Sees God and the North Peace Secondary School put on 2 showcase plays Hank Cinque and Hopeless Hamlet.

Josue Laboucane, professional actor and director from Vancouver adjudicated the festival.  Josue is originally from Fort St. John and started his theatre experience with NPSS and Stage North. Josue is one of the Theatre BC adjudicators who are selecting community plays to compete in Kamloops at Mainstage in July. 

Winners from the festival include Best Production Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad, Best Actor Ted Sloan, Best Actress Clarice Eckford, Best Director Chalene Scott.  The play Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad picked up four awards and would normally represent this region at Theatre B.C.’s Mainstage in Kamloops this summer, but the production is unable to attend so the runner-up, Dog Sees God will compete at the festival.

Plans are underway for the 2013 Peace River Zone theatre Festival. The Board of Directors of the Zone will be encouraging all communities in the region to enter next year in May.
