What’s Happening with The Langham Theatre??

Sad to say that there currently is no definitive timeline for reopening the theatre for performances with a live audience. However, as we wait we are forging ahead with some creative projects and physical upgrades – plus we have a full line-up of great professional performers ready to go for 2021 – fingers crossed! 

Cool stuff that’s in the works:
 Live From The Langham video series summer of 2020 – 

We’ve secured funding to produce a video series of live-off-the-floor mini-concerts from some of our best local and area performers! We’ll be working with local filmmakers to capture brief musical and theatrical presentations and share them with the community through video shorts posted on-line.
 Shooting scheduled to take place this July – we’ll keep you in the loop!

Theatre Ventilation System to be installed – 

We’re happy to announce that we’ve also secured funding for a long-needed ventilation system for the theatre! It will be a state-of-the-art energy recovery ventilator system that will bring in fresh air and eliminate the heat stratification issues in the theatre – improving both comfort and safety. Installation scheduled for June.

…And See You at The Langham!
Step into the rich visual world of artist Deborah Thompson

The Langham is producing a short video featuring Nelson collage artist Deborah Thompson, whose exhibit Once We We’re Whole was in our main gallery when the COVID lock-down occurred. The film includes the entirety of the exhibit – rich with mythic themes and the narrative potential of gesture – as well as interviews revealing Deb’s creative process and technique.

Coordinated by Langham Curator Seathra Bell, shot and edited by local videographer Louis Bockner, the video is currently in post-production and scheduled to be released soon – stay tuned!
