Theatre & Performing Arts

Performing arts and theatre are a vibrant part of community life in the Kootenay Rockies region.
The Key City Theatre in Cranbrook regularly welcomes professional touring artists from Canada and around the world. The curtains of the Capitol Theatre – an art-deco style, former silent movie house from the 1920s – open wide, not only for Nelson, but also for the entire Kootenay Rockies region. The 426-seat auditorium is centre stage for community theatre, recitals, dance troupes and much more.
Music and nature provide the inspiration for the Kaslo's Jazz Etc. Summer Music Festival, where world-class musicians play on a floating stage on pristine Kootenay Lake.
In Rossland, "Gold Fever Follies," a live musical theatre show held in a restored 1898 Miner Hall, relives the area's fevered gold rush days. The Rossland Light Opera Players, founded in 1951, is one of British Columbia's oldest amateur theatre groups. During summer months (July to August), nightly street theatre is staged in Revelstoke and Nakusp.
