“I had my first experience with livestreaming and am so glad I chose to stream after the in-house tickets were gone. It’s not like watching television. It was easy to connect. As soon as the streaming began, I was afraid to blink in case I lost the feed! I felt like I was at the Port. I will always try for a theatre ticket first, but am grateful for the opportunity to stream as an option.” — Carolyn Parks

WHY DO LIVESTREAMING?
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! Livestreaming allows more people to tune in and experience the joy of live performance in Nanaimo.
For Spotlight Shows, you can purchase a livestream ticket for $12. Only one ticket is needed per household.
