About the Show: Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.
Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence... and special powers! She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace

Participants should bring a lunch, two snacks, and a full water bottle each day.

Financial Assistance

Finances should never prevent a child from participating in the arts. The Kamloops Music Collective is committed to making our programming accessible to as many children and youth in our community as possible. Our bursary program has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of local kids by helping them access in tuition-based programs at a reduced rate.  If you need financial assistance, please apply.    

KMC Bursaries are awarded on the basis of commitment to music and financial need. While we try to help as many youth as possible,  the number of bursaries that we approve is limited by the funding our organization receives from local donors. 

To be considered for financial assistance, applicants can complete an online application form and then email in supporting documents.  Your privacy matters to us and your information and situation is never shared with anyone. 

Bursary applications for the Kamloops Music Collective's Summer Series programs is now closed.

To create a comprehensive list of protocols and procedures to be followed during our programs, the Kamloops Music Collective has been referencing information from Work Safe BC, BC Centre for Disease Control, The Province of British Columbia COVID-19 Webpage and other industry relevant examples. If new information is released that is relevant to our programs, we will update  our protocols to reflect this.


Cancellation Policy


In the unfortunate situation where the program needs to be cancelled on short notice due to health concerns, registrants are entitled to either a full refund in the event that the program has not commenced, or a prorated amount if the program is cancelled part way through the week.

Withdrawal Policy


In the event that you wish to withdraw your child from a program after you have paid the registration fee, a processing fee of $75 will be deducted from the refunded amount.   

Health and Safety


Due to recent concerns regarding COVID19, we require children to be 100% healthy to attend the program.  If your child has a fever or signs of a cold or flu, we will ask that they do not attend the program.  If a child develops symptoms of an illness during the day that child will be removed from the class and staff will contact parent/guardian to come and pick the child up. 

Helping Us to Make These Programs Possible

We would like to share our gratitude with the United Way and the British Columbia Arts Council, for supporting our organization and our Summer programs!
