  1. Hi I am new to town and would love the opportunity to get involved with a production. I was a part of the drama society in Hay River nwt as a child and took drama throughout school. I do understand auditions are the way on stage but I would love to be able to help with production as I am talented at makeup, and can help with set builds as well. If there is a good time to go to the theater to talk to someone that would be great?

    1. Hi Theresa!
      Thanks for contacting us – tonight is our AGM at the Capitol Theatre. Please join us at 7pm and you’ll get to meet the board members, many of whom are involved in this season’s productions as well as many other general members. My name is Janet Deakin, outgoing secretary for the board and I’d be happy to personally welcome you! If you’re on facebook, check out our Portal Players Dramatic Society page! Welcome to Port Alberni.
      Hope to see you tonight~
      Janet
