Extraordinary General Meeting Wednesday June 23rd, 2021 via Zoom

***ATTENTION***
Portal Players Dramatic Society will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting Wednesday, June 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm via ZOOM.
The topic of the meeting will be to adopt a Special Resolution for the board to apply for CEBA for the society. Per PPDS Bylaw J-2 Borrowing Powers, “Should the board feel that it is necessary to borrow funds to carry out a project, it shall convene an Extraordinary General Meeting of the society to consider a Special Resolution to approve the borrowing”…”Special Resolutions authorizing borrowing in excess of ten thousand dollars will require a two thirds majority of the Members in attendance at the Meeting”.
Voting members shall be members in good standing.
The Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) is an interest free business loan available to Canadian businesses to help with the strain that COVID-19 has caused. We can apply for up to $60,000. If we repay the balance of the loan by December 31, 2022, the government will forgive 33 percent of the loan (up to $20,000). Our goal in applying for the loan is to help fund our restart efforts. Deadline to apply for CEBA is June 30, 2021.

Portal Players Dramatic Society is a Registered Non-Profit Organization and a Registered Canadian Charity which owns & operates The Capitol Theatre. All our actors, directors, crew & production teams, along with our theatre maintenance people, are highly skilled, talented & local volunteers, members who are working hard to help create and promote a Vibrant Arts Community in the Alberni Valley. Portal Players thanks you so much for supporting us by buying tickets and attending our performances!

Due to the quickly evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the directives of the province of BC, Portal Players Dramatic Society Board of Directors has made the decision to close the Capitol Theatre to the public for the remainder of the season.

“I Ought to Be in Pictures”, our education programs (Stages Youth Theatre, Wee-Glee/Glee/Sea Notes Choirs), and all other events scheduled to take place at the Capitol Theatre have been postponed. 

Prorated refunds will be forthcoming to all of our educational program participants with more details to follow.  Season Ticket holders will be contacted. 

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate through this ever-changing situation. We are deeply concerned about the health and welfare of our patrons, members, staff and contractors, and we are confident that this is the right course of action at this time.
