Founded in 1980, UCFV Theatre champions the university college’s mission statement, which states that our fundamental purpose is to help students achieve their goals. Theatre options at UCFV include a two-year diploma, a two-year Associate of Arts degree, a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree (extended minor or minor options), weekend workshops, public lectures, and external study tours. Students can also participate in the Co-operative Education option. The series of public performances that constitutes our season of theatre serves to both advance students’ educational qualifications and skills and enrich the quality of life in communities of the Fraser Valley.

You may want to take Theatre at UCFV for one or several of the following reasons:

• to acquire a Bachelor of Arts degree with a theatre extended minor or minor, an Associate of Arts degree, and/or a Theatre Arts diploma
• to develop pre-professional skills to be further developed in career-oriented theatre schools
• to pick up university transfer credits for other degree programs and/or diplomas
• to improve your abilities as a community theatre participant
• to prepare for a lifelong enjoyment of the performing arts.

The season of theatre mounted in the department’s theatre on the Chilliwack campus is a vital component of the program. Emphasis is placed on producing Canadian plays and classics (mainly Shakespeare).

In addition to the diploma program, the Associate of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts: Theatre extended minor/minor option, and the season of theatre, the Theatre department also sponsors public lectures, trips to professional and university productions, and visits by touring theatre groups. External study tours are organized to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and are open to all students and community members.
