For the Safety of our Dedicated Subscribers and Theatre Enthusiasts, the Metro Board has Decided To Postpone All Remaining Shows in our 58th Season Until the Fall of 2021

As you are all aware, Metro is not alone among performing arts companies to be severely affected by the ongoing restrictions caused by Covid-19. METRO had tried to operate within the restrictions mandated by the Provincial Health Officer. 2021. However, without clear guidance as to when restrictions will be lifted and without confidence that patrons will return in numbers that are financially sustainable, METRO’s Board of Directors has had to make a very difficult decision to postpone the remainder of Season 58 until at least September of 2021 when conditions are more predictable.

Already, we are planning to mount another full season. We hope that you will continue to have patience during these very trying times. Please stay tuned for future updates.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY by Beverly Cross

 Opening in March 2021

A case of mistaken identity over the course of a weekend in the French countryside creates havoc for our couples.  Two very different women – one a cook; the second a Parisian model – have the same name.  This creates frantic complication of identities, plots, counter-lots, and bedrooms  (that are changed with alarming frequency).


March 12 – March 27, 2021 with Matinees Mar 14 & 21

New Dates: TBA

* show run Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Two TV mystery writers, one a bit of a drunk, the other a bit disenchanted and eager to move to greener pastures (mainly in Hollywood).  What can keep them together?  Old lingering camaraderie?  Nostalgia?  Or perhaps the threat of blackmail?  Can that keep a partner in his place – maybe!  Add a “Yard” Inspector who has all kinds of questions that just keep coming…..and coming….Who is up to what?  This one will keep you guessing until the final blackout!

STAG and DOE by Marc Crawford

April 16 – May 1, 2021 with Matinees Apr 18 & 25

New Dates: TBA

* show run Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

From the writer of “Bed and Breakfast” comes a hilarious farce of one couple’s wedding day,  and one couple’s wedding fund raiser with one huge problem.  A mighty wind has scuppered the outdoor wedding sending the marquee, the port-o-potties and the chairs into the next county.  Can the  two couples share the community hall space without risking mayhem, destruction, and some hair-pulling? (spoiler alert – NO to the last!)

THE ODD COUPLE by Neil Simon

October 29 – November 14, 2020 with Matinees Nov 1 & 8

New Dates: TBA

* show run Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Neil Simon’s classic and arguably best play.  A comedy about two widely different men who decide to try rooming together. One is a slob.  One is a neat freak.  Who will drive whom crazy first?  The action is interspersed with the antics of their four Friday Night poker-playing buddies.  And then by a dinner date with the  ‘”Coo-Coo Pigeon Sisters” from England.  ‘Hands Across The Sea’ was never like this!

FIVE ALARM by Kristen da Silva

September 25 – October 10,2020  with Matinees Sept 27 & Oct 4

New Dates: October 29 – November 21, 2020

* show run Wednesdays, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

It is fall in a small town in BC, where every year, a Chili Cook-Off is held at the municipal fair.  Ava is determined to win after 16 years of trying.  The event is named after her father – “The Chili King”.  Her rival is a former childhood friend.  Her enthusiastic, and wildly optimistic assistant has no culinary expertise, except cleaning out the zoo cages. What could go wrong?  This hilarious send up by a new Canadian playwright is a great start to Metro’s season!

The Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. The magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring sees a handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage. As the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying “Bah Humbug!”
