Fifth Annual Gabriola Theatre Festival!


Welcome to the Fifth Annual Gabriola Theatre Festival!

The Gabriola Theatre Festival is a key element of the Gabriola Arts Council’s annual program. From the successful first Festival in 2009, it’s been apparent that Gabriola loves performing arts. We continue to respond to feedback from audiences, volunteers and performers, and each year there have been improvements. This year—the exciting Fifth Annual Gabriola Theatre Festival—will be the best yet. May I take this opportunity to thank the organizing committee and the dedicated team of volunteers for your invaluable contributions. Thanks also to performers and their supporters who work so hard to keep us engaged and entertained. Thanks especially to you, the committed audience members, for your enthusiastic support. I look forward to seeing you throughout the Festival weekend.

— Jim Wilson-Storey, Festival Coordinator
