  • Description


    Our theatre company, is a most unique theatre venue -- a 30 meter tall ship. We have been touring contemporary professional theatre for 50 years. Its innovative theatrical productions on to the deck and in the rigging of a Ship Theatre that has been touring internationally: Canada, USA, Europe and the Mediterranean. We are not a cruise ship.

    The company is working on ship maintenance and working on future shows and tours for the 2021 Production, that will take place in Pacific NW. A show and tour was planned for 2020 but all was cancelled due to Covid 19.

    In the new year, starting in January 2021 , some workaway volunteers may be welcome to stay on the ship in Victoria on Vancouver Island to help finish the last of the restorations especially on the ship's interior and to work on the theatre set. Some help is needed with the either Administration & Social Media, Cooking & Shopping for a small crew on board.

    We strive to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion of all people. We create a community, and we intentionally welcome all. We value the diversity of ethnic and cultural identity and background, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and its expression. We foster a climate of purposeful inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, cared for, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other.
