“Live theatre in the heart of Waterdown “postponed until further notice.

Village Theatre Waterdown (VT) is working closely with City of Hamilton monitoring the current situation in our community. The safety of VT volunteers and patrons remain our priority. Memorial Hall, Waterdown remains closed with restricted access.

VT greatly regrets cancellation of “Enchanted April” by Matthew Barber rehearsals in March 2020 as the global pandemic emerged. Cast, Director, Producers, stage managers, production crew, box office were in “full swing” as VT  volunteers worked tirelessly to deliver performance dates April17-May 3/2020. Cast were “off book” learning their parts, set is built, costumes designed, lightning/sound design in development, marketing /promotion launched, box office supported and open.

VT will be back to present this wonderful play as soon as the pandemic is behind us and restrictions of gatherings are developed by the Province of Ontario.

Successfully Completed – Nov 2019
