We hadn't been to the Varscona in a while so obviously they have renovated since our last visit but the venue is fantastic now and every seat is a good seat. Recommende as long as you can find a good play to watch.

If you love live theatre this is a little gem. Located in the heart of the historic Old Strathcona district it hosts plays and improv. comedy all year long. Truly some of the best professional entertainment you will find.

We have been to the Varscona Theatre many times and have been charmed by its small, intimate feel. You can get very involved with the plays and the stage is quite visible no matter where you sit. The theatre repertoire is quite eclectic so you...More

Home of risky and wonderful, locally-produced theatre. A super-intimate space with very few bad seats.
