This is Twisted Theatre is proud to announce its debut season, starting with Episode 1 of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Dec. 28 and 29 in the historic courtroom at the Maritime Museum of B.C. in Bastion Square.

Episode 1, Fri. and Sat., Dec. 28 and 29 at 8pm. Episode 2 is Feb. 1 and 2. Tickets are $20 per show, or $35 for two at 250-385-4222. M
