Our 2018 Season

We champion hope.
We champion love.
We champion the wide
expanse of the human spirit.

The Chemainus Theatre Festival is a special place where people come together to immerse themselves in story and song. From all over Vancouver Island and further afield, theatre lovers are drawn to the energy, intimacy and quality of live theatre in Chemainus and the beauty of the Cowichan region. We constantly hear patrons marvel at the professionalism, warmth and kindness of the Chemainus Theatre Festival Experience.

In 2018, we celebrate unlikely lovers and dreamers. It’s a celebration of hope and resilience – an immigrant’s heartfelt comedic story in Kim’s Convenience, a broken musician’s reignited passion in the Broadway smash Once, a pitchy, bombastic singer who Gloriously delighted thousands, four sisters determined to shine in Little Women, quizzical charmers in Outside Mullingar and desperate teenagers longing for belonging in Grease. This collection of shows celebrates the moxie and determination to which many aspire – to make the most of what we’ve been given, share our lives with one another and, if we might be so blessed, light the world with love, laughter and song.

It’s a pleasure producing theatre in the heart of Vancouver Island by the side of the sea. We invite you to join us in the colourful journey through story and savour the season at the Chemainus Theatre Festival.
