Dear Friends,

We were so touched by all of the positive feedback from our patrons on ArtSpring’s first theatre show in almost seven months. Thank you to staff, volunteers, board, and all of our patrons and supporters. We couldn’t do it without you. We were thrilled to begin the season with Valdy, who is such a fine musician and gentleman.

We are encouraging our patrons to purchase their tickets online or by phone. The Box Office is also now open, though for health and safety reasons hours are limited to Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: 10am-1pm. Online sales are available 24 hours a day, or you can leave a phone message. (250.537.2102).

With all best wishes,
Cicela Månsson
Executive & Artistic Director, ArtSpring
