The Victoria Playhouse is a registered not-for-profit organization. Opened in 1982 with the late Erskine Smith as the creative director and Pat Stunden Smith as the GM, the intimate setting provides excellent live theatre and musical performances.
They’ve come a long way since their opening, in 1985 they had their first renovation installing some softer seats, and then in 2004 the remodeled the front entrance and added some much needed air-conditioning.
A really big breakthrough came in 2008, when the outdoor sensation “Follow the Fiddler” made it’s debut and became a staple in Victoria. Their latest milestone came when the President’s Award from The Tourism Industry Association of PEI was presented in March, 2011. The Victoria Playhouse is the “little theatre that acts BIG”!
