To our valued patrons,

The Mary Winspear Centre will be closed to the public until further notice. As a central hub for gathering on the Peninsula, it is our utmost responsibility that we take every precaution to keep our patrons and staff safe to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  

Our box office and rental services will continue to operate by phone, email, and through our website . Mary Winspear Centre staff will be updating those who have tickets to upcoming shows. We ask for your patience while we work closely with promotors to re-schedule performances.

During this time we ask you to shop local, as a non-profit organization we rely on the patronage and support of our community. The Mary Winspear Centre offers gift certificates that can be used towards any upcoming show in the Charlie White Theatre. If you are a ticket holder to any of our affected shows we ask you to consider donating the tickets back to the Centre and receive a charitable tax receipt or exchange your tickets for a credit to future performances.

We are working hard behind the scenes to bring in great programming this coming summer and fall. Stay tuned for exciting announcements coming soon.

Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.

Brad Edgett
Executive Director 
Mary Winspear Centre
