- Kaleidoscope Theatre presents Pinocchio (March 10th and 11th)
The spirit of a little boy is trapped inside a piece of wood and born into a strange world. On his quest to become a ‘real boy’, his journey is fraught with danger and tricksters that mislead Pinocchio on his path. But Pinocchio is also protected through the unconditional love of his father and the Blue Fairy who woke him, as they help him to find his way home.
- Pacific Opera Victoria presents La Bohéme (February 15th – 25th)
One of the most loved operas of all time, Puccini’s La bohème is a gorgeous, nostalgic slice of life about a group of young friends hanging out together, experiencing Paris and love, and loss. Puccini’s music sparkles with humour, pours out lush, sumptuous melodies, and is always completely irresistible.
- Neva at Theatre Inconnu (February 13th – March 3rd)
Neva takes place on Bloody Sunday, 1905, the day when protesting workers were massacred by government forces on their way to the Winter Palace to deliver a message to the czar. Calderón, using biting humour, ironically questions the purpose and integrity of art in a world gone – and unfortunately, still going – mad.
- Langham Court presents Sense and Sensibility (February 28th – March 17th)
You’ve never seen Austen like this! This rollicking, ingeniously-staged new adaptation follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters. Bursting with humour, emotion, and bold theatricality, Sense and Sensibility asks: when reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
- Raincoast Education Society presents Capturing the Coast (February 18th)
The Capturing the Coast photo contest celebrates the natural world, the people, and the unknowns of Vancouver Island’s west coast. Photographs entered into the contest should inspire people to explore, adventure, and respect the natural world, and highlight the importance of stewardship and conservation across the region.
- Randy Bachman (March 13th and 15th)
One of the Great White North’s favourite musical sons, Bachman co-founded iconic bands The Guess Who and Bachman‐Turner Overdrive, earning over 120 gold and platinum albums/singles around the world as a performer and producer. He’s also no stranger garnering coveted #1 spots on radio playlists, having done so in over 20 countries.
- The Belfry Theatre presents Forget About Tomorrow (January 23rd – February 18th)
Jill Daum, one of the co-creators of the international hit series Mom’s the Word, created Forget About Tomorrow to examine the effects of early onset Alzheimer’s on a family and how it changes our relationships with those we love. Forget About Tomorrow features two new songs from Jill’s husband, John Mann from Spirit of the West. John was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2014.
