Stage 43 will be hosting a week-long theatre festival in May, bringing together local theatre groups from around the Fraser Valley to entertain audiences and to enhance their own skills through professional adjudication.
This amazing event is part of one of the longest-running theatre traditions in Canada. Theatre BC’s Mainstage is an annual festival for community theatre groups throughout BC. Winning plays from each of the (up to 10) zone festivals come together for friendly competition at the provincial level. The play chosen as “Best Production” at our festival in May will represent the Fraser Valley Zone at Mainstage, which is taking place this year in Port Alberni from July 5–13.
The following productions will be part of this festival (8:00pm each night):
Stage 43 Theatrical Society | One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest & OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION
Langley Players Drama Club | Dancing at Lughnasa
Surrey Little Theatre | Sealed for Freshness
Opening Nite Theatre Society | Age of Arousal
