We have developed an interesting lineup of plays for our patrons that will give them something to laugh about, whether over dinner or show only.

Our audience capacity will be significantly reduced to meet the rules for dealing with COVID-19, meals will be served in takeout containers prepared by our caterers and drinks will be brought to you, volunteers will wear mask and gloves, social distancing will be in place, all cleaning instruction will be followed and all precautions for entering and exiting the theatre will be in place as outlined in the guidelines provided by the province.

The season begins with a comedy by Paul Slade Smith, The Outsider, which runs Oct 19-24, followed up with The Catering Queen, a comedy by Alison Lawrence running from Nov. 28 to Dec. 5 and a show yet to be announced being held March 6-13, 2021.

The season ends with another comedy by Annie Pie called At First Sitewith performances from April 24 to May 1, 2021. Monday and Tuesday evenings are show only, Wednesday is a dark night and Thursday through Saturday dinner theatre.

Tickets are $50 for dinner theatre and $25 for show only with at 20 per cent discount if you purchase a ticket package for all four shows. Because of COVID restrictions, all tickets must be purchased in advance.

 For previous season tickets holders and others holding tickets, we are performing the show we had to cancel, Impromptu on Nun’s Island, the week of Sept 21-26. Previous purchasers will again be contacted as we rearrange the seating to fit under the restriction. We wish to thank our patrons for their patience as we work to accommodate everyone to their satisfaction. Anyone wishing tickets for this show, please call 306-446-3133 to check for availability.

For the previous purchasers, we expect tickets will sell quickly for the upcoming season, so if you are planning to renew please don’t wait too long. To new patrons please contact us at or 306-446-3133 and watch for information on our website for information on our upcoming season and our history.

Live theatre has a long history in the Battlefords and we are pleased to be able to continue that tradition. Battlefords Community Players and our many volunteers thank everyone for their support over the years and hope that your support will continue as we all work through this very difficult time together.

In all things big and small, support your local community – so they will be here in our future.    Battlefords Community Players are an important part of the community and are working hard to continue as part of its future.

Thank you and see you at the theatre.
