Chemainus Theatre Festival

The Chemainus Theatre Festival, est. 1992, is a professional performing arts destination on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The non-profit charitable Society offers a continuous season of regionally- and internationally-acclaimed theatre to over 70,000 residents and visitors every year.

From the purely dramatic to the musically enriched, The Festival’s roster of shows feature an entertaining selection of classic and contemporary tales, told in romantic, comedic, tragic and more enjoyable styles. Dedicated to serving versatile interests of audiences and artists, The Festival has attracted talented guest actors, directors, musicians and designers from across North America – a testament to their highly regarded theatrical productions and facilities.

Theatregoers can complete their theatre experience with a delightful meal in the Playbill Dining Room. Before each show, live music creates the perfect setting for diners to indulge in the impressive show-themed buffet.

The on-site Gallery Gift Shop showcases over one hundred BC artisans, and is a wonderful place for art-lovers and shoppers to browse, and take home, a memorable piece of the west coast.
