Kelowna Community Theatre
Kelowna Community Theatre
Since 1962 Kelowna Community has been bringing people together – there’s nothing like seeing it live! Since we opened the doors and raised the curtain in 1962, the theatre has been a vision of bringing people together from across the Okanagan and beyond to enjoy the performing arts from community groups to professional productions. This vision continues and with recently completed major renovations, the theatre is a gem in the heart of Kelowna’s vibrant Cultural District.
The Kelowna Community Theatre is in the Cultural District in the heart of beautiful downtown Kelowna in British Columbia's breath taking Okanagan Valley. Located in the interior of the province and surrounded by orchards and wineries, Kelowna offers all the big city amenities with a small town charm and sensibility. Across the street from 100 mile long Okanagan lake, steps to the grand Okanagan resort and located in Kelowna's vibrant cultural district the theatre is a venue not to be missed.
The KCT is proud to be home to The Kelowna Community Concert Society, Theatre Kelowna Society, The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra and Ballet Kelowna. These organizations delight audiences all year by bringing words to life and by evolving music and danceinto an art form in its most profound sense. Aside from The Fabulous Seasons provided by these organizations, the theatre has hosted such acts as Duke Ellington's Band, Prairie Oyster, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, The Moscow Ballet, Colm Wilkinson, Who's Line is It Anyways, The Proclaimers, Leahy and the Just for Laughs Comedy Tour as well as many, many more fabulous national and international acts. There is something for everyone here at the Theatre! A wide array of events including dance, opera, concerts and drama that will have you laughing, crying, singing and dancing in your seats!
