BECOME A CLT SUPPORTER
Our roots in the Comox Valley can be traced back to 1921 when the Courtenay Amateur Club was formed (later renamed the Courtenay Drama Club). In October 1960, the drama club was formally incorporated as the Courtenay Little Theatre Society (CLT).
In addition to presenting three major live stage productions a year at the Sid Williams Theatre, including our very popular family shows over the Christmas holidays, CLT is well known on a regional and provincial level. At Theatre BC’s annual North Island Zone (NIZ) Festival, CLT has garnered 105 awards to date, including 13 for Best Production. This has led to CLT representing NIZ at the provincial Mainstage Festival, where we have won 36 major awards, including 5 as Best Production, plus a number of special awards to individual CLT members.
Like all theatres around the globe during the pandemic CLT had to pause live stage productions, however our members managed to keep the “joy of theatre” alive during this difficult time with online readings, script writing and live streaming projects. Now CLT is thrilled to be resuming live performance this summer with Theatre in the Park and is again preparing a season of live plays in the coming year for audiences at the Sid Williams Theatre.
Courtenay Little Theatre is incorporated as a BC profit society and is a registered charitable organization. In addition to live theatre performances, our charitable purposes also include providing theatre training workshops, regular community event nights, and awarding of bursaries to young students seeking to further their training in theatre. CLT is entirely volunteer run and operated and relies on our member’s time and talents as well as monetary donations from the community to fulfil our mission which is to “create opportunities to discover the joy of theatre”.
People can become a CLT supporter in a number of ways by
- attending our live events,
- volunteering their time and talents,
- membership in the CLT Society, and
- making a charitable donation.
