Welcome to our site
E.C.H.O. Players Village Theatre is a non-profit society of dedicated members of the community. Community is what E.C.H.O. Players is all about. Relying upon the talents, creative energy and generosity of individuals and businesses we have been bringing the live theatre experience to the Oceanside area for for over 40 years.
Whether you wish to share the experience from the comfort of your seat in the Village Theatre (home to E.C.H.O. Players since 1974), from the footlights of the stage or from behind the scenes, you will find yourself welcomed into a community of patrons, fellow performers, artists, writers, set designers, and volunteers of every description.

The Christmas Express
December 14th – 31st, 2017
by Pat Cook
Director: Mari-Lyn Kelly
When Leo Tannenbaum appears from nowhere on December 23rd, things begin to change around the Holly Railway Station. A long defunct radio springs to life, the local carolers (notoriously awful) sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and everyone seems to be filled with Christmas spirit. Is it Leo's doing or just a coincidence? This nostalgic theatrical greeting card is full of eccentric small town characters, wise-cracking their way to finding the true wonder of Christmas.
ECHO Players is excited to present two workshops this coming January 2018 at the Village Theatre led by actor, director, playwright and teacher, Michael Armstrong.
Friday evening, January 12, 6-9
Saturday, January 13, 12-5

This will include many of our talented members presenting Monty Python favourites (e.g. The Dead Parrot, The Four Yorkshiremen, etc.) plus some great Canadian skits as well. The producers guarantee that there will be something to offend everyone. The comedy evening will be for mature audiences and will not be suitable for children.
