HOW DOES LIVE-STREAMING WORK?

Please note: Live-streaming happens “live” in real time. If you miss the performance, you won’t be able to watch it at another time. It won’t be recorded for future viewings.

1) Purchase a live-streaming ticket online.

You’ll receive a link that gives you access to the show.

2) By the time of the show, click on the link you received.

e.g., If the show starts at 7:30pm, you must click the link by this time in order to enjoy the entire performance.

3) If you click before the start time, you’ll be placed in an online waiting room.

That’s great! It means you’re in the right spot.

4) Once the show starts, sit back and enjoy live performance!

You’ll see the Port Theatre, artists, and in-theatre audience from the comfort of your home.

WHO IS LIVE-STREAMING FOR?

  • Everyone can enjoy live-streaming, whether you’re in Nanaimo or on the other side of the world!

WHY DO LIVE-STREAMING?

  • 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.
