Studio night

These are evenings where we offer skits, mystery theatre, improv and/or readers theatre. These are a great time to try out acting, directing or putting on a play you've written. If you want to direct, you may need to fill out our Play Submission Form (PDF here). Contact us for more details on the program for our next Studio night if you wish to act or direct (otherwise you will have to wait and see).

Zone Festival

Theatre BC is divided into 10 Regional Zones that encompass the province. Each year each regional zone holds a festival (at a different club each year), normally in April-May in order to determine a ‘best of the best’ performance. We are part of the North Island Zone, which includes Nanaimo Theatre Group, Port Alberi's Portal Players Dramatic Society, Qualicum's ECHO Players Village Theatre and Courtenay Little Theatre. Our spring performance is normally the show that goes to "Festival". The winner of each Zone's Festival are invited to Mainstage.
