Vision and Mission

Updated November, 2016

Portal Players Dramatic Society will develop, within the community, an enhanced appreciation for the performing arts, and will be recognized for offering progressive, innovative and dynamic entertainment & educational programs.

Portal Players Dramatic Society produces plays, offers education, and runs a civic theatre. We are a leader amongst our community theatre peers by providing specific educational programs, mentorships and outreach to youth & adults. As an inclusive volunteer organization, we collaborate with many arts and business partners to engage the community and our membership. As a vocal advocate for diverse cultural experiences in the Alberni Valley, Portal Players draws on its pool of member volunteers who work to strengthen and promote the organization. Through the operation of our own space, The Capitol Theatre, Portal Players is dedicated to fostering the performance arts, the presentation of art in all its diverse forms, and the preparatory work needed for public enjoyment. Ultimately, Portal Players believes in the power of Art to bring all people together.
