After the Intermission – Live Performance Starts Again!

By September 2, 2020No Comments

There’s NOTHING that can replace live performance and that’s why we do what we do. We’re thrilled to bring you a physically-distant Spotlight Series this fall that’s safe, fun, and accessible for everyone.

Our fall season features 5 excellent events:

  • 50 in-theatre, physically-distant seats available for each show
  • Plus, live-streaming options

JOËLLE RABU & NICO RHODES
NO REGRETS – SONGS OF THE LEGENDARY EDITH PIAF

Saturday, October 17, 2020   Show starts at 7:30pm

The connection that these two versatile performers have on stage is electric. In addition to Nico’s lush musical arrangements and Joëlle’s powerful voice, their ability to tell a story; their humorous banter that can only stem from their inter-generational points of view; their life’s paths that have caused heartache and laughter; and their vulnerability is the fodder that creates musicality and theatricality into one magical event.

BERGMANN PIANO DUO
BEETHOVEN, BACH, AND MORE!

Sunday, November 1, 2020   Show starts at 2:30pm

The dynamic Bergmann duo bring you joyful and energetic music including a set of Beethoven, Bach and more! Their extensive repertoire ranges from the baroque to the contemporary and includes numerous arrangements and compositions of their own.

JILL BARBER
CANADA’S SWEETHEART

Friday, November 6, 2020   Show starts at 7:30pm

Jill Barber is a three-time Juno Award nominated singer-songwriter with an unforgettable voice once heard, never forgotten. Her critically acclaimed repertoire spans a transformative spectrum from folk, to vocal jazz, to pop, and includes songs in both French and English.

ERIC HARPER
EXOTIC FUSION OF ROCK AND FLAMENCO

Friday, November 27, 2020   Show starts at 7:30pm

Award-Winning Flamenco Guitarist Eric Harper creates not only a unique sound all his own but his music is melodically entrancing, virtuosically ferocious and harmonically soul-stirring to the core. At his show, expect to see floor-stomping, guitar-scraping, rhythm-beating madness combined with a powerful, honey-dipped voice that will leave you touched, moved and inspired. Think Dave Matthews meets the Gypsy Kings.

KEN LAVIGNE
MISTLETOE & MAGIC

Sunday, December 6, 2020   Show starts at 2:30pm

Singer Ken Lavigne has charmed his way into the hearts of concertgoers across North America with his exciting blend of classical tenor sound and modern style.

LIVE-STREAMING

The Port Theatre is pleased to offer live-streaming for many events, so you can enjoy live performance safely from your own home.

Diversity is one of our core values. The Port Theatre Society is proud to be accessible and responsive to all segments of the population. We continue to expand our community outreach and ensure access and collaboration with people from all cultures, ages, races and genders. Nanaimo is a gathering place and the Port Theatre is at the centre; the heart of our downtown.

During this pandemic, only 50 audience members are allowed inside the theatre. We understand that many will not be able to attend for a variety of reasons. Therefore, we want to ensure that everyone gets the opportunity to participate in the Arts! Folks in care homes, hospitals or other facilities can connect to the Port Theatre! Live-streaming allows more people to tune in and experience the joy of live performance in Nanaimo.
