Bard to Broadway Theatre Society confirms summer season good to go in Qualicum Beach

Trio of live performances to start in July and August for small, socially distanced audiences

The intermission on live performances in Parksville Qualicum Beach is now over.

The Bard to Broadway Theatre Society announced their summer 2021 season earlier this year in April, but after cancelling their 2020 season due to the pandemic, they are overjoyed to share they will be mounting three shows this summer at the Village Theatre in Qualicum Beach.

In accordance with the recent rollout plan presented by the province of B.C., the group is confident they will be able to welcome a small, socially distanced audience in July and August to enjoy live theatre once again.

The group’s board of directors has been working hard behind the scenes to develop a comprehensive COVID safety plan that will ensure the safety of both cast and crew, as well as our patrons.

It is their highest priority to follow the directives of the Provincial Health Authority, WorkSafe BC, as well as working closely with ECHO Players to bring live theatre back into our community responsibly.

The three shows they will perform this summer are: ‘Crimes of the Heart’, ‘Just the Ticket’, and their musical, ‘Forbidden Broadway’.

Email b2btheatre@gmail.com to purchase tickets and for more information on COVID protocols for audience members.

Bard to Broadway Theatre Society thanks the community for their continued support of the performing arts.
