Meet Our Team

An experienced and creative team manages and operates the Port Theatre
under the excellent stewardship of our Board of Directors

Bruce Halliday

General Manager

In 2006, Bruce became General Manager of the Port Theatre Society taking on Artistic Programming in 2010. Being involved in building operational and administrative systems while developing and adapting the Artistic Vision for the future has been extremely rewarding. Bruce is very excited to be leading the Port Theatre team into a capital fundraising campaign to complete the community vision of a purpose built performing arts centre. With the support of The City of Nanaimo through City Council, the Port Theatre Society has been given a rare opportunity to make this dream a reality for our community.
