Please Read! – Notice Regarding COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 all of our spring Lunchbox and Spotlight Theatre programs have been cancelled and fully refunded. Please email if you have any questions or concerns.


Welcome to OPAS!
Our brand new, Online Performing Arts Studio!

OPAS was created specifically as a means to continue to connect, engage, and develop while social distancing measures are in place and our regular classes are cancelled. But just because we can’t meet up in person doesn’t mean we can’t learn, have fun, or get creative – that’s what OPAS is for!

OPAS is entirely an online experience. For those of you that need to regain some semblance of structure we are now offering weekly classes over Zoom. Or, if our schedule doesn’t work for you, you can download one of our webinars, where you can watch the videos and learn at your own speed and on your own schedule.

If you’re just looking for something fun for the kids OPAS also has several options for free resources that will both educate and entertain. You can find scenes from our original plays for you to use at home, as well as full scripts, and games.

In our new upcoming video series, Behind the Curtain, kids can watch inspiring interviews with professional performing artists as they tell us how they got to where they are today – and how you can do it too!

But wait – there’s more!

We’ll be creating new content for you on a regular basis – new classes, video series, contests, workshops, etc. So check back regularly to see what’s new!

Lastly, we just want to say that we understand times are hard for many people right now, so it’s especially important we remain accessible and affordable. So for a limited time all of our classes and webinars are being offered as Pay-What-You-Can,  this way you can choose the price point that works best for you. If necessary, you can also request a subsidy by emailing

We’re very passionate about OPAS and we sincerely hope that it helps the people of our community stay engaged with the arts during this time. So explore the online studio, check out all our FREE resources, and be sure to check back often as we continue to create new online performing arts content!

Upcoming Theatrix Productions


As You Wish – The Musical

As You Wish is an original musical adaptation of The Princess Bride written by director Lauren Hillman and packed with everything you enjoyed from the beloved classic – adventure, romance, magic, swordfights – and of course TWUE WOVE!

Our production has moved online! – INCONCEIVABLE!

Since performing live was no longer an option for our As You Wish cast we have turned our production into a movie that everyone can enjoy for FREE! Filmed entirely in quarantine, from each student’s own home, we will premiere As You Wish LIVE on Friday, June 26 at 8:00 pm.

How to Watch:

You’ll be able to watch As You Wish on June 26 right here on our website, on our Theatrix Facebook page, or on our YouTube channel here. The best way to watch will be on YouTube, where you can sign in and engage with us by liking and commenting on the video. Subscribe now so you don’t forget! And don’t worry, if you miss the live premiere the video will still be available after the initial air date.

Theatrix Summer Camps

We are currently awaiting direction from the BC government regarding summer programming. At this time our summer camps are still available for registration online. If cancellation is required due to COVID19 all participants will be refunded. 


Summer Performance Camp – Into The Woods

For ages 7 – 12 – (No Auditions Required)

*7 year olds should register for Play Camp unless they have previous experience.

This week long camp is perfect for students who enjoy our Lunchbox Theatre program. Students will learn different acting techniques through a combination of games, exercises, improv, and rehearsals as we work towards creating a mini-musical performance of Steven Sondheim’s Into The Woods. Learn movement, voice, character building, and other acting skills while also developing confidence and having fun.

Into the Woods is a fairy-tale come to life. When a Baker and his wife discover they have been cursed by the witch the next door, they must go into the woods to find the ingredients she needs to reverse the spell. Their search for the magic ingredients weaves through the fairy-tales you already know like Rapunzel, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the beanstalk, tangling them in a web of comedy. And the best part? This mini-musical adaptation will have you into the woods and out of the woods and home before dark!
