Move complete for Courtenay Little Theatre

Courtenay Little Theatre has been a mainstay of the Comox Valley theatre scene since 1960 and is proud to announce that it has moved its rehearsal and storage facility to Unit A & B 2683 Moray Avenue.

The unexpected move was accomplished in just 90 days, after the previous building, in which the community theatre club had leased space for 16 years, was sold.

“We have accomplished the seemingly impossible task of downsizing and relocating to a completely renovated new space while, at the same time, rehearsing for and mounting our fall show at the Sid Williams Theatre—all in just three months,” says Kirstin Humpherys, CLT vice-president, who oversaw the project.

“We have an incredible club with dedicated members who kicked into action immediately over the summer.”

The move and renovations have proven to be expensive for the community theatre group, which has mounted a fundraising campaign to cover the costs.

“Not only did we need to complete extensive leasehold improvements before we moved in to the new space, but we also are facing a substantially higher monthly rent,” says Val Macdonald, CLT treasurer.

“We are very grateful for the strong support which the Comox Valley has given us in the launch of our capital fundraising campaign and in continuing to support our productions at the Sid Williams Theatre.”

Donations to the CLT capital fundraising campaign may be made through CanadaHelps.org under Courtenay Little Theatre or directly to Courtenay Little Theatre, PO Box 3033, Courtenay BC V9N 5N3.

Charitable tax receipts will be issued to donations over $20. Recognition under CLT’s Star Awards programs will be given, according to the donor’s wishes, for donations over $100 in the programs of the two remaining 2018-19 CLT season productions at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Tickets for Courtenay Little Theatre’s productions of A Christmas Carol: the Musical (Dec. 22 to 31) and Hedda Gabler (April 5 to 13, 2019) are on sale now at the Sid Williams Theatre Ticket Office, www.sidwilliamstheatre.com or at (250) 338-2430 ext. 1, 442 Cliffe Avenue, Courtenay.
