Upcoming Events:


Theatre BC celebrates its 85th Anniversary in 2017 and will be holding Festivals featuring all-Canadian playwrights in the spring. To cap off the Festival season, we’ll celebrate Canada 150 in Vernon, BC with Mainstage 2017 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. This week-long Festival of Best Play winning performances will include workshops and adjudications as BC community theatre enthusiasts celebrate Canada on stage. It’s also Vernon’s 125th birthday, so there will be plenty of celebrating to go around!

Mainstage 2017 will be held June 30 to July 8 – an accommodation information PDF can be downloaded by clicking here.
