OUTstages History

Our newest festival, BC’s first dedicated queer theatre festival, OUTstages launched in the summer of 2015, following hot on the high heels of Victoria Pride Week. OUTstages now kicks off the Pride season, running at the end of June. This festival has its finger on the pulse of the queer theatre scene and is proud to bring some of the most exciting, daring and thought-provoking performances and queer artists to Victoria every summer. Get OUT!
