We are thrilled to bring you a full season of live professional theatre from the heart of Vancouver Island. The year features a fantastic and wide array of musicals, comedies, mysteries, and thrillers. We kicked things off with a funny and folksy radio station comedy featuring charming characters and skilled actor-musicians to get us giggling over the airwaves, followed by a new adaptation of a smart, mysterious thriller making its West Coast premiere. This Summer, a blockbuster movie-musical with lively songs, including great hits like Unchained Melody, examines what connects us to the here and now – and the great beyond. In the Fall, we will produce a crazy new comedy sweeping across Canada with loads of door-slamming farce and pie-in-the-face hilarity. Rounding out the year, we return to one of the most beloved holiday shows in Chemainus Theatre history – this time as a cozy radio play.
In between these mainstage delights, check out the Playbill Presents Cabaret Series – featuring fantastic musicians and storytellers in the intimacy of the Playbill Dining Room.
