At Victoria Playhouse, we recognize our capacity for creative connection increases as our perspectives widen.

We seek opportunities to improve our systems of care in order to be better equipped to receive underrepresented members of our community, including but not limited to individuals who are or identify as Indigenous, Black, racialized, LGBTQ2S+, d/Deaf, low vision, or disabled.


About Us:

PEI's longest running little theatre is looking for a self-directed and diligent individual with a passion for the performing arts to serve as Managing Director; someone in search of authentic community connection who can bring their organisational expertise, tools, and meticulous nature to our small but cohesive team in picturesque Victoria by the Sea.

  • Manage the day-to-day activities of the office, theatre, and administrative and accounting procedures, including payroll, reconciliations, and remittances.
