All our productions cultivate professional standards of practice and performance, and offer many opportunities for you to develop your creative skills both onstage and behind the scenes.
The Theatre program is based on the University of the Fraser Valley's campus in the beautiful city of Chilliwack

features a unique 206-seat thrust theatre especially designed for instructional purposes. Our superb facility also boasts state-of-the-art technical equipment, spacious scene, prop and wardrobe shops, a well-stocked costume department, and flexible studio/rehearsal spaces.
