Victoria, BC isn’t dry for scary things to do. There’s a lot of dance parties for Bootoria 2022, but why limit yourself to other family fun activities?
There are not a lot of new special events going on in Victoria, BC as Halloween nears. Aside from staples returning to normal form as pandemic concerns abate, what’s new is limited to what is advertised and not. Please check our past Bootoria Event Guide(s) for those annual shows that may have come and gone. It’s safe to say not every organiser wants to be liable should immunised event goers get sick.
Sadly, the organisers behind Fear in the Pier and University Frights Theatre haven’t announced anything. Let’s hope they have something spectre-acular planned when we can truly put the pandemic behind us. But as for what’s new, I’m compiling this list as they become known for the public to purchase tickets in advance for. Thanks go to Theatre Victoria’s Facebook collective for contributing ideas to this list.
The Vancouver Fringe Festival is back and takes place Sept 8 to 18th around Granviille Island.
The Vancouver Fringe Festival is right around the corner! This event will be taking place Sept 8 to the 18th at various venues around Granville Island, and for those who missed those travelling shows at Victoria Fringe have a chance at Terminal City.
Where possible, I’ve included my thoughts on why this particular show must be seen. The links will take you to their landing page on the Vancouver Fringe website and list the dates. As a bonus, ten performances will be live-streamed! Please visit the landing page here for a full list. I’ve mentioned a fond Victoria favourite and am still waiting for the return of One Man Avengers, once that act is fine tuned.
Tickets are $15 each (live and in person), and info concerning health / pandemic regulations can be read here.
It’s business as usual for the Victoria Fringe Festival this year, and it’s almost a return to pre-pandemic form.
It’s business as usual for the Victoria Fringe Festival this year, and it’s almost a return to pre-pandemic form. That is, I can’t help but notice that there’s fewer international acts. That’s because not every part of the world has fully recovered from the pandemic or it still has travel restrictions in place. Until the latter lifts, it’s tough to get a true representation of all the acts touring this year.
Intrepid Theatre is no doubt being cautious in who to bring to the garden city. I’m just glad we have an event despite continous changes to where events can take place or the fact some venues, namely Langham Theatre is still temporarily closed.
Even though Mochinosha Company isn’t listed (they were a staple pre-pandemic), I hope once when travel restrictions to and from certain countries are lifted, they will be back! Suspicously missing is St. Michaels University School (SMUS)Summer Musical Theatre graduating performance. They usually perform a play every year, but ever since the pandemic hit, there hasn’t been a lot of news about what’s happening with them.
