A Spring of Theatre 2018 in Victoria BC. March-May.

A Spring of Theatre 2018 in Victoria BC. March-May.

Spring signifies renewal, rebirth and growth, and nowhere is this more evident than in Victoria’s burgeoning theatre ecosystem where the period from March to the end of May will see  more than SIXTY shows, cabarets, fundraisers, play readings and festivals, including the Belfry Theatre SPARK Festival and the TD Festival of New Works at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in March, Paper Street’s Improv Festival in April and Readers’ Theatre Festival and Intrepid Theatre’s UNO Fest in May. In addition there are two on-going play reading series–The Jazz Page produced by workingclasstheatre and Oupost 31 Victoria and World Play by Puente Theatre.  Look for work by emerging artists at Intrepid Theatre’s YOU Show and Impulse Theatre’s Peek Show. Students at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, the University of Victoria Phoenix Theatre and SKAM Studios are finishing their school year with shows and year-end productions.  There will be theatre for young audiences, and old favourites to enjoy.  Remember too–theatre in Victoria is among the least expensive in the country; there are pay-what-you can performances, shows by donation, preview and rush tickets that make theatre accessible to everyone.


NEVA – by Guillermo Calderón
February 13 – March 3
Theatre Inconnu

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. In a rehearsal space in St. Petersburg self-dramatizing diva Olga, the recent widow of Anton Chekhov, bemoans her inability to act well any longer, paralyzed by the fear of disapointing others. Only two other actors have managed to show up due to the massacre: the slippery Aleko and the seemingly effacing Masha. They alternately engage in improvised impromptu scenes of heightened emotion, amusing themselves by blurring the distinction between the personal and the staged, finding the genuine in the counterfeit and visa versa, all the while critiquing each other’s artistic choices and moral character. Calderón, using biting humour, ironically questions the purpose and integrity of art in a world gone – and unfortunately, still going – mad.

“An extraordinary effort.” The Hollywood Reporter

Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen’s Classic Dramatic Comedy, Adapted by Kate Hamill
Directed by Keith Digby and Cynthia Pronick
Langham Court Theatre
February 28-March 17

You’ve never seen Austen like this! As the “greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history,” this rollicking, ingeniously-staged new adaptation follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their sudden loss of fortune. Bursting with humour, emotion, and bold theatricality, Sense and Sensibility asks: when reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Anything Goes! directed by Heather Day Jeliazkov
Oak Bay High School Musical Theatre
February 23-March 3

Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.

Who Killed Spalding Gray?
written & performed by Daniel MacIvor
reWork Productions, Toronto

“…after 80 minutes that blend mythology, dreamlike images, the movie Big Fish, and MacIvor’s own propensity for looking for signs from the universe and “significance where (he) can find it,” there’s a moment of breakthrough and clarity, which is well earned and a beautiful (literal) breath of fresh air.” CARLY MAGA, TORONTO STAR

Animal Medicine
PRODUCER: Eddi Wilson
An Intrepid Theatre YOU Show at the Intrepid Theatre Club

Part biology lesson, part pet therapy session; Animal Medicine explores the experience of a self identified human seeking a cure for their condition. Eddi Wilson uses music, monologue and movement to dissect what they have learned from a life spent staring in the microscope.

Broken Rhythms
Metro Studio
March 16/17

ThySelf –The newest piece from Victoria’s innovative indie dance company Broken Rhythms explores anxiety, self-sabotage and identity through dance. This show is for anyone who has felt lonely in a crowded room or at peace in a moment of solitude.

ThySelf explores who we are in public, in private and who we strive to be through movement, breath, and rhythm. Dancers explore the fractured self that comes together to create coherent identities that transform and dissolve moment to moment.

Charles Fernyhough writes… “We are all fragmented, …there is no unitary self. We are all in pieces, struggling to create the illusion of a coherent ‘me’ from moment to moment.”

Originally conceived as a work to combat personal feelings of anxiety, the research and creation evolved to dive deep into a fragmented reality that focuses on conflicting internal monologues that make up personalities. Rather than thinking that thoughts and identity are stagnant ThySelf views them as ever evolving layers that crack and separate to create individual moments that make up our day to day reality.

‘Wouldn’t you like to be able to say, just once, ‘I knew them when they were just starting out’?”-Janis La Couvée, on The Festival Of New Works

At this unique event, Victoria audiences are given a rare glimpse of the first stirrings of creation. In September, a few second-year students start making a new piece for the stage. Each artist works closely with a mentor for three months. The students strive to learn the skills of preparation and incubation, gaining fresh insights through trial and error. Then, each new artist gets to test the piece in front of you, a Victoria arts lover. Our audiences get a rare opportunity to see and hear these bold experiments. Join us for this provocative event!

Mingle with them and other guests throughout the evening, follow your Sherlock Holmes instincts, and once the you’ve eliminated the impossible, the improbable must be the truth.

“In 1978, The Duke Saloon was a roadhouse for locals and truckers.  Offering cheap beer and country music, it hosted a mix of truckers, travelers and hard-working, blue collar locals.  Perched on the outskirts of Victoria, it was known for it’s no-nonsense attitude, especially from it’s owner, Rusty McMullen.  However, Rusty’s not been seen for a few days, and his daughter Kitty is concerned he might have upset the wrong people…

Come dressed for the era… but remember, in this sleepy backwater, Disco is one of them fancy city things…  Doors open at 6.30pm, the introduction beginning at 7.00pm.  Please note that the Duke does not serve food, but has fine beer and whiskies”

Theatre Inconnu
May 1 – 19

“A writer named Daniel rents an apartment only to discover he already has roommates which may or may not be figments of his imagination. They all seem to be collaborating to pull him down the rabbit hole of a strange alternate reality. Or maybe it is actually going on. Or are they doing it for another reason, like to confound him from moving forward in his life? His possibly imaginary housemates include mindless bureaucrats, cruel dictators, verbally abusive parents and jilted ex-girlfriends. It’s not until a mock rebirthing – or maybe it actually happened? – and the expulsion of a dybbuk from Daniel’s body that the main character gets closer to resolving his quest to close ‘the bandaged door to my bloodied past’… a very rewarding theatrical experience that unfolds into a sensible, coherent, suitable, coherent conclusion. That you didn’t see coming!”   Gigcity, Edmonton
