Victoria Playhouse Cancels 2020 Summer Season

2020.summer.season.cancelled-onmu2157juz45ii7vc0lgtnsqocremqw9yer70oc8w.jpg
Dear Friends,
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.
Sincerely,
Emily Smith, Executive Director

Watermark Cancels Summer Season

cd9ded10-3a6f-4a8b-bf25-84c5719de48d.jpg

With the health of our audience members and our theatre company in mind, we have made the painful decision to cancel Watermark Theatreā€™s 2020 summer season.

We have been spending the past number of weeks trying to find new ways to present great classical theatre for our audienceĀ despite the limitations presented. Our dedicated stage crew and designers were scheduled to begin building sets, costumes and props on May 11 and rehearsals with the acting company were scheduled to begin on June 1. With current restrictions in place we canā€™t even get some of our team to the island! Making this decision is heart breaking for us but until it is safe to assemble in large groups again, we will have to keep the theatreā€™s doors closed.

That being said, we are a creative organization and we have a number of ideas on how to keep the theatre vital, vibrant and in your hearts and minds. In the months to come, we will explore opportunities to bring art to our community through our on-line presence or in partnership with other arts organizations and we will continue to share those ideas with you.

Rest assured that we will be back in the summer of 2021 with a wonderful slate of plays to entertain, delight, and provoke audiences once again. Theatre artists around the world are recharging their creative energies and reevaluating their place in the world, and will be back on stage with a new sense of purpose. Theatre has been around for 2500 years, through all kinds of world challenges, and will return again. Let us never take the act of assembly for granted ever again!

We look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre!
