The 2022 Victoria Playhouse Festival will welcome patrons back to the theatre in Victoria-by-the-sea this summer with two theatre productions. 

Beyond the Sea – June 30–September 4

On a pier in a small town, a pair of strangers begin a conversation that will change the destiny of two lost souls. 

Theo is waiting for a date who is well past overdue and Gwen is manning the ticket booth for the Ghost Tour that promises a vision of the mournful Woman in White. Theo and Gwen explore love, loss, and the importance of looking forward. With humour and heart, they show us that no one is perfect… and in the end, that may be our greatest strength. Written by Kristen Da Silva, Beyond the Sea is a story about the importance of human connection told with wit and empathy through two unforgettable characters.

Open Casket Open Mic – July 7–August 31 

What happens when a funeral home tries to make some extra cash by hosting an Open Mic in its spare room? Absolute mayhem!   

Great Aunt Doonie’s life is being celebrated tonight and her family is furious that the power ballads are drowning out her eulogy. Our Open Mic Host is also the funeral director; dealing with wacky musical folks and mourners’ meltdowns is quickly driving him batty. Things ramp up even further when an amateur medium finally graduates to professional, as spirits from the “other side” suddenly appear amidst the pandemonium. They’re here to get this party started… amongst other unfinished business. 

Open Casket Open Mic is a wild, musical adventure at the place where the living and the dead meet—a funeral home. It was written by Lindsay Kyte and Terra Spencer
