Victoria Announces 2021 Season

We’re back for 2021! And while some things may be a little different than you’re used to at Victoria Playhouse, we’re determined to offer the magical experience of live theatre that you’ve come to expect from us.Two irresistible, funny, entertaining shows playing all summer long!
Off The Grid by John Spurway Our season begins with Off The Grid, the first Atlantic Canadian production of Fredericton playwright John Spurway.  Marty is an architect anxious to learn more about self-sufficient houses so she can write a magazine article about living “off the grid”. Her husband Leonard is a loans officer who has reluctantly agreed to spend a week without his creature comforts. While Leonard adjusts to life without TV, the internet, or a flush toilet, Marty gets some guidance from Lowell, their reclusive next-door neighbour, who has been living in the middle of nowhere for two years. But Leonard is wary of this recluse. It seems like Lowell might be hiding something… but he’s not the only one keeping secrets! Off The Grid will be directed by Mark Fraser and features Melissa Kramer, who starred in the Playhouse production of Dancing Lessons in 2018; Lee J. Campbell, who patrons may recognize from our 2017 production of On A First Name Basis; and Jim Fowler, a Nova Scotia resident and veteran of stage and screen.
The Good Time Radio Variety Show We are thrilled to present Farmgate Theatre’s original production The Good Time Radio Variety Show!The Playhouse will be transformed into the sound stage of Island Radio Station CRPO for the weekly broadcast of The Good Time Radio Variety Show. A modern take on the classic radio variety show complete with music, mystery, comedy, adventure, and thrilling sound effects all performed live in front of a studio audience. It’s always a good time for a good time! The all-star cast includes nationally recognized performers who all make PEI their home. Actors Julain Molnar and Cameron MacDuffee are regulars at the Charlottetown Festival and musicians Karen Graves and Adam Hill are members of the award-winning Atlantic String Machine. Director Charlotte Gowdy’s credits include the Stratford Festival, PEI’s Watermark Theatre and two previous shows for the Victoria Playhouse.
