Remembering Lanni McInnes Shupe - Western Canada Theatre

It is with heavy hearts that WCT announces the passing of long-time company member Lanni McInnes Shupe. From her time studying under founder Tom Kerr, Lanni was an integral part of WCT for several decades, contributing as an actor, director, and Associate Director, among other roles, including co-Artistic Directo.

Lanni and her husband, Honourary Life Board Member Terry Shupe, have played an essential role in WCT's success since the beginning. In the words of former Executive Director Lori Marchand, "It's not a stretch to say that without Lanni and Terry Western Canada Theatre and professional theatre in Kamloops would not exist". Our condolences to Terry and the rest of Lanni's family and friends. She will be missed.
