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.

Repertory performances in Qualicum Beach, July 4 ~ August 19, 2017.
Modest travel allowance for cast members travelling from out-of-town. *Some* billeting possibilities.

THANK YOU for sharing this message as widely as possible.

Fading stars of the 1950s, George and Charlotte Hay find themselves on the brink of disaster with their steadily diminishing theatrical troupe in Buffalo, New York. But they might have one last shot at stardom – Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his up-coming movie! Innumerable complications result in a hilarious frenetic, fast-paced farce.

LOOKING ~ Norm Foster
Val, Nina, Andy and Matt are four singles living average lives and "looking" for something more – love, sex and the whole damned thing. Canada's comic master begins with the first blind date, and takes us on a fabulously funny excursion through the highs and lows, the joys and dilemmas of middle-aged dating.

This Tony Award winning Broadway MUSICAL is one of Canada's greatest theatrical success stories. On the eve of their wedding, Robert and Janet encounter unexpected obstacles, until all is resolved in the best madcap, musical comedy tradition. A terrific, tuneful, toe-tapping tribute to the Twenties.
