The Belfry Theatre began producing plays in 1976. As a professional adult theatre company, we are dedicated to producing contemporary plays, with an emphasis on Canadian work, and to promoting artistic, cultural, and educational events in the Greater Victoria Region.
In the past 30 years the Belfry has become one of Canada’s most respected companies, producing 212 plays, of which 150 have been Canadian, and over 32 have been premiere productions. Many of the plays that have premiered at the Belfry have gone on to acclaim across Canada, in the U.S., Australia, Europe and London’s West End. Belfry Theatre productions have won awards in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary.
The Belfry Theatre produces up to twelve plays per year: one or two summer productions, a four play Mainstage subscription series, and a mid-winter festival of innovative and alternative work from across Canada – our SPARK Festival.
The Belfry Theatre’s mission is to produce theatre that generates ideas and dialogue, and that makes the audience see the world a little differently.
