Update Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Theatre BC has been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The health and safety of our members, audiences and the community at large is our top priority.

At this time, we are reviewing all events and venues that have been planned for Theatre BC activities. We will provide an update as to our 2020 Zone Festivals and 2020 Mainstage Festival as soon as we can.

Both the BC Centre for Disease Control and the Public Health Agency of Canada state the public health risk associated with COVID-19 for Canada is low.

We will continue to follow the guidance of local, provincial, and federal health authorities.

We will monitor this situation closely and provide updates with any changes.

The latest updates will be posted to our website and social media channels.

We encourage everyone to seek out information on how to protect themselves and the community at large by visiting the following sites:
