Safety and Health | Coronavirus

By now you have probably heard about collective efforts to combat COVID-19, or the Coronavirus, in our theatre community. At this time, the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as LOW for the general population in Canada. The Government of Canada is confident that our public health system is prepared to respond to any outbreak of COVID-19 and is reassessing the public health risk, based on the best available evidence, as the situation evolves. With these truths in place, the safety and health of our patrons, artists, and staff is our highest priority.

What does this mean for performances at PT?

  1. The shows will go on! Until we receive advice from the government or health officials to the contrary, performances will continue as scheduled. Our current show, Best Of Enemies, runs through March 21st.
  2. For the past week, our staff have been disinfecting all surfaces before each show – including arm rests on the seats, door handles, hand rails, countertops etc. – and hand sanitizer stations have been set up in the theatre lobby.
  3. We have temporarily suspended our program re-use policy – new programs will be printed for each performance.
  4. If you are exhibiting any symptoms of a cold or flu, we encourage you to stay home and rest!

I need to stay at home. What are my options?

  1. You may donate your tickets back to Pacific Theatre and we will issue you a charitable tax receipt for the equivalent amount. This is a particular gift during a challenging time for non-profit arts organizations like PT.
  2. Give your tickets to a friend! They can pick up the tickets under your name, just call the box office and let us know.
  3. Exchange your tickets for a future performance. Please contact our box office to discuss options by calling 604-731-5518 or e-mailing We hope that all of you stay healthy – and we look forward to seeing you safely at the theatre soon.

As we receive new information and implement any additional measures, we will be updating you here and on our social media channels. Thank you as always for being both our supportive patrons and our artistic family. Stay safe and make art!
