Background

Since 1978, the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre (formerly known as the Cowichan Theatre) has been the premier entertainment venue in the Cowichan Region welcoming tens of thousands of visitors, patrons, performers and artists to this exceptional 731-seat, proscenium arch theatre. The Cowichan Performing Arts Centre serves the Cowichan Region as a community theatre for local groups, as a roadhouse for touring professional artists, and as a conference facility. The CPAC has an annual, award winning Presenting Series curated by Arts and Culture Division Manager, Kirsten Schrader — named Presenter of the Year in 2018 by the BC Touring Council.
