Our Fall 2018 Schedule!

 

E.C.H.O. Players will be back in the Fall, 2018!

Our Spring season has ended but we will be back in the Fall with the following productions:


Enchanted April Lotty Wilton, stifled and dissatisfied with her life, spots an advertisement in the Times for a month’s let in a small Italian castle that promises “wisteria and sunshine”. Seeing her chance to escape dreary England and regenerate her life, she joins forces with an acquaintance Rose Arnott, an elderly and formidable Mrs. Graves and a troubled society beauty Lady Caroline. Enchanted April, as entertaining, enchanting and refreshing as a spring spent in the Italian countryside, makes for a charming evening out

Directed by Wendy Punter

Running from October 11th to October 28th, 2018 at the Village Theatre in Qualicum Beach.


One Act Play Festival

Join us at the Village Theatre for five days of whirlwind activity that features enthusiastic and talented artists from all over Vancouver Island. Enjoy a daring, imaginative and diverse collection of one-act plays.

The Annual Vancouver Island Juried One Act Play Festival, an affordable, enjoyable way to experience the pulse of Oceanside’s drama scene.

Peter Pan - A Musical "Peter Pan" is the classic story of the mischievous little boy who flies and refuses to grow up, preferring, instead, to live in mysterious Neverland, sharing adventures with the lost boys, pirates, fairies, tick-tocking crocodiles and, occasionally, real children. Our family- orientated musical includes song, dance and action that will enthrall and engage every child from five to one hundred and five.

Directed by Julian Packer

Running from December 11th - 30th, 2018 at the Village Theatre in Qualicum Beach.


Looking for Summer Theatre?

Bard To Broadway will be housed in the Village Theatre for their 2018 Summer Season starting July 3rd and ending August 14th, 2018 with their productions of:

In this "bubbly" comedy, four perfect strangers meet for the first time. Some of them don't even like each other. How on earth can they ever become BFFs? Well, a little "tippling" couldn't hurt – could it?


The multi-award-winning (Tony, Golden Globe, Oscar) Broadway smash musical. Murderesses Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart find themselves on death row together and fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows in 1920s Chicago. Fabulous singing, extraordinary dancing, unbeatable live orchestra.


The master comic playwright's brand new take on the "howling" classic. Dr. Watson is along, of course, together with a host of other characters played by a small cadre of versatile, quick-change actors. ("....Think 39 Steps on steroids....")
