UFV Theatre program has solid future in Chilliwack
The University of the Fraser Valley’s theatre productions may have a change in venue in the years ahead, but UFV’s commitment to the Chilliwack community and Fraser Valley as a whole is as strong as ever.
“Our new $40-million expansion project at Chilliwack’s Canada Education Park houses a 100-seat studio theatre, classrooms and faculty offices for our Theatre program,” said Leslie Courchesne, director of UFV marketing and communications. “We look forward to continuing to offer theatre courses and productions at this new location, as well as talk about the potential to perform at community theatres in Chilliwack.”
UFV’s current performance theatre is on its Yale Road campus. This campus is for sale, but UFV intends to lease-back the performance theatre from the buyer for up to five years. This means UFV theatre productions will continue in that theatre as well, likely through 2015.
