Following the announcement of a ban of gatherings of 250 or more people by the B.C. provincial government on March 12, Venables Theatre issued a release to reassure ticket-holders.

The theatre is implementing additional disinfection and sanitation measures throughout the facility. The theatre is also adivising ticket-holders who no longer wish to attend to re-sell their tickets or give them to a friend or family member.

Any additional actions the theatre implements to keep audiences safe, as well as any changes to scheduled performances, will be posted on the theatre’s website and social media.
