Theatre announces return of cabaret series and online auction

Tickets available soon for dinner and entertainment in the dining room

The Chemainus Theatre has announced a return of the Playbill Presents Cabaret series and start-up date for its summer online auction.

“Our plan is to resume the cabarets on June 16th,” noted Randy Huber, the theatre’s managing director. “They will include a three course dinner followed by entertainment in the dining room.

“We’re excited about the provincial re-opening plan and that we’re able to restart these in-person cabarets.”

Tickets will go on sale for the cabarets June 7, the same day the theatre will also be launching its Summer Solstice Sunsational online auction, featuring 57 auction lots with a host of gift baskets, getaways and experiences.

The cabaret series will be coming back for socially distanced gatherings up to 50, coinciding with Step 2 of the provincial re-opening plan that is due to begin June 16.

June and July will feature live performances by Jonas Shandel and Joëlle Rabu and Nico Rhodes.

The Gallery Gift Shop is also open and currently exhibiting more than 40 works from guest artist Tom Shardlow until the end of July.

As the summer unfolds, the theatre also anticipates announcing details of a return to the stage this fall, coinciding with Step 4 of the re-opening plan.
