The Cooney Papers

The Cooney Papers

Charles and Betsy Cooney settled at Tranquille in 1868 with their two year old daughter Katherine. Together they forged an empire on the shores of Kamloops Lake. Over their lives they built Canada’s largest horse herd, developed one of the finest ranches in BC, introduced BC apples to the Ontario market, and were the life and heartbeat of the community.

The Cooney Papers chronicles the lives of Charles and Betsy from each of their births to the death of Charles in 1917. This innovative production combines video and live acting in front of a 36 foot curved screen set in front of the loading docks in the old Tranquille Laundry.

Prepare your soul for the show as you walk through the tunnels viewing images that introduce you to the Cooney family. Immerse yourself in this story told through the lens of our cameras, voices from the past, live actors, and a soul rendering soundtrack. 

PLEASE ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE SHOW STARTS!  We cannot admit late comers!

This is a family friendly show.
