March was “World Theatre Month” in Victoria BC!

World Theatre Day is March 27th.  I hereby declare, that in Victoria, March is  World Theatre Month.





I remember asking Janet Munsil, artistic director of Intrepid Theatre, why there was no celebration of World Theatre Day in Victoria, and she said that local theatre companies were too busy in March to organize an event.

Now I know why.  Thanks to the many productions, regular seasons, and festivals, I will have attended 13 (thirteen) shows in March (without counting six excellent mini-plays at SPARK).  And, I missed a few!
