Free Events at the Belfry Theatre

We’re participating in Culture Days, a national event, this year. You can listen to a new play reading, tour the theatre, participate in acting exercises and, for the really brave, step onto the Belfry stage for a mock audition.

You can also see special guest performances from Pacific Opera Victoria and Puente Theatre. This will be a hands-on theatre experience you’ll never forget!

Free Event at the Belfry Theatre

Our inaugural event with the Greater Victoria Public Library. Four local librarians will let their hair down, take off their glasses and speed review their favourite books and DVDs to kick off Canadian Library Month. How fast and furious can they talk? Highbrow, lowbrow and everything in between, including some great art titles inspired by RED.
