Community Involvement

Thank You!


Now that 2014 is past, we would once again like to express our heartfelt thanks to all our production sponsors, advertisers, Gala sponsors and donors, volunteers and valued patrons. Thank you all for helping us to continue to provide live, professional theater on Vancouver Island. We couldn’t have done it without you!

For information on how to become a sponsor or promote your business through the theatre please call Marlie Kelsey 250-246-9800 ext 710.
