I’m very sorry to announce that, bearing in mind the recommendations of our Chief Public Health Officers, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Festival Season.
This would have been our 39th season of professional theatre and we were gearing up for an exciting summer, including the Maritime debut for Fredericton-based playwright John Spurway and our first rep season since the ’80s! But the health and safety of our staff, audience members, and community must be our priority at this time. We look forward to returning to the stage in 2021 with all the laughs, the tears, and the beautiful interplay of audience and actors that you’ve come to know and love at Victoria Playhouse.
We know that many people are feeling the strain of reduced incomes, but if you feel able to do so, we would be so very grateful for your support to help the theatre survive this crisis. Donations are eligible for tax deductible receipts and donors have many options for giving, including one-time or monthly donations through CanadaHelps.
If you would like to help support Victoria Playhouse through this challenging time, but would prefer to donate in a different way, please call us at 1-800-925-2025.
Together, we will weather this storm.
