Welcome to TheatreOne


After months of adapting, postponing and hoping, we regret to announce we have cancelled our 2021 Fringe Flicks series, scheduled to run throughout this spring. As you know, COVID infections are increasing, and there is no sign that related protocols and restrictions will be lifted soon. Under the circumstances, we see no other choice.

We continue to be optimistic, though, that we will be able to return to programming by the late fall, including a new 2021-22 Fringe Flicks season. Watch your email for further news.

See Below for our other programming.

Emerging Voices has shifted from our traditional stage presentations to virtual online play readings. Opening the series is Signals from the Lockdown by Dave Mott in collaboration with Tamara McCarthy. This Tuesday, March 16th event is followed by Anahareo by Anne Nesbitt on April 18th, and You Are Not a Ghost by Jessica Schacht and Sam Young on June18th. To register for an Emerging Voices’ event, please click on the “Learn More” link below. Our Emerging Voices Series is generously supported by the City of Nanaimo.

Livestream performances of Rick Scott Family Concert (Saturday, April 18th) and Upstream! with The Kerplunks (Sunday, May 15th) can now be purchased through the Port Theatre. Families can experience the Livestream presentations or opt to view the online presentations any time over 24 hours, immediately following the livestreamed events. Rick Scott and The Kerplunks are co-presented by TheatreOne, and the Port Theatre as part of TheatreOne’s Just Kidding for Kids family series.
