Peninsula Productions was formed in late 2010 to help fill a need in White Rock/South Surrey for professional quality live entertainment. Since its inception as a not-for-profit society with a mere handful of dedicated members, it has become a vibrant organization with charitable status, an active board and over one hundred volunteers.
Peninsula Productions produce professional quality theatre. Our past seasons have included comedies like the Canadian premiere of Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot and hard hitting dramas like Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman. In 2015 we created a Staged Reading Series in the hopes of catering to an audience that would like to see theatre that is more challenging. In 2017 in partnership with the City of White Rock we commissioned a play about the history of White Rock. This brand new Canadian play celebrated the 150th Birthday of Canada!
We believe in giving back. Regularly we give tickets to people who would not otherwise be able to attend performances. We also believe in sharing knowledge and expertise. Community players and interested young people are given the opportunity to work alongside professional theatre artists, experienced directors, producers and technical support people.
Our Artistic Director, Wendy Bollard, received the 2013 Surrey Women in Business award as an Innovator and was named as a “Community Inspiration” by the City of White Rock. Peninsula Productions was nominated for Best New Business of the Year in 2012 by the South Surrey, White Rock Chamber of Commerce.
