This season is all about welcoming in the new. New staff members Patricia Greenwell, Brian Kroeker, and Jenny Purslow bring a diverse range of skills to the Theatre and I am thrilled to be working with these talented people.
Older technical equipment has been replaced with newer technology that will serve us for years to come. New equipment also means we can present bigger, more sophisticated performances. Cowichan Valley audiences will appreciate seeing shows in their full glory with larger sets, impressive lighting and video effects, and bolder, clearer sound. We are excited to bring you a wider variety of shows and to push the boundaries of what is expected.
Come and see what’s happening at your local performing arts theatre.
I’ll save you a seat.
