One of the premier nights of the season on the Victoria theatre calendar is coming up soon at Government House.
Langham Court Theatre, currently in the midst of its 90th season in the city, is in final preparation for the off-stage celebration of this momentous milestone. The 90th birthday cocktail party is set for Feb. 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the lieutenant-governor’s mansion at 1401 Rockland Ave. Lt.-Gov. Janet Austin will be on hand to help the company mark this extra-special occasion.
The event will feature hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, a selection of adult refreshments and live entertainment, all included for a ticket price of $40. Tickets are available until noon on Jan. 31 and can be purchased in advance only, by phone (250-384-2142) or in person at the Langham Court box office, or online (scroll to the bottom).
If purchasing online you’ll need to select seats as if you were going to one of two available showtimes, but that simply means there’s room for two theatres full of people at the gala at Government House.
The dress code is cocktail attire and parking is available onsite.
