Biographical history

The Belfry Theatre was established in 1975 by the Springridge Cultural Society. The name changed to the Belfry Theatre Society in 1981. The Theatre originally promoted cultural events and sponsored performing arts workshops, and hosted touring companies during its first three seasons. It began producing its own shows in 1976/1977, and by the end of the 1977/1978 season had become a full-fledged professional theatre company. The Theatre is housed in the formed Emmanuel Baptist Church in Victoria, B.C.
