An excellent place to watch your favorite theatre production. Always a well done production. A great little theatre for Victoria.

Have seen lots of performances here from theatre, dance to concerts.
It's perhaps 750 seating and really intimate.
Best seats are on the main floor as the balcony can get warm.
It's always worth seeing what is on here!

We just went to the opening preview of this play. It was well done and an excellent value. We have been coming to Victoria for years and never knew this playhouse ran during the summer. The preview tickets were only $24 and one of the best values you'll ever find in Victoria. Even at regular price ($50 ish dollars) I would think it was well worth the entertainment. We are back in August and will make a point of doing the "My Fair Lady" play.

Tickets can be ordered online and I had no problem getting good seats just 2 days before I wanted to go. The theatre architecture was charming.

Close to the Rialto, a fun local production with excellent acting and singing. Good for the season of cheer. The theatre seating is quite steep, so the upper areas are not good if mobility is an issue.
