Our Pop-Up Theatre, Your Neighbourhood

December Pop-Up shows run weekends December 3 – 19! To order a show, e-mail [email protected].

SKAM brings theatre to you with Pop-Up Theatre Home Delivery! Our Pop-Up theatre uses a flat-bed truck to transform the open-air into a stage, bringing shows to neighbourhoods all around the Greater Victoria Area.

Our December Pop-Up shows are each around 15 minutes in length and feature evening storytelling suitable for all ages.  We have one show that is sillier and another that has more drama, and may be more engaging for youth and adults. You can book a show for your household, birthday or block party, community event, youth centre or family night – we do it all!

Pop-Up Theatre Home Delivery has been featured in CHEK News, CTV, CBC, Times Colonist and more.

This project is made possible thanks to the wonderful support of Island Savings, Victoria Foundations’ Community Recovery Grant, and the City of Victoria’s Strategic Plan Grant. We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended donation amount?

Pop-Up Shows are by donation. You pay what you want: if you would like to see a show for free, that’s a-okay. Our donation suggestions are:

  • $60 – what we think one show is worth
  • $100 – if you want to cover the true production cost
  • >$100 – if you want to pay it forward so someone else can see a show for free. 
    Cash donations are accepted (contactless) on site. You can always book for free, or for $20, invite friends and encourage them to bring donations.
What are the location and space requirements?

We currently serve Victoria, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, Saanich and View Royal – the five municipalities that contribute full shares to the CRD Arts Development Fund. If you live outside that boundary, please make us an offer.

The Pop-Up Truck needs a relatively flat space of 30 feet/two car lengths to park and with six metres between the audience and performers.

Will there be more pop-ups?

We do Pop-Up Home Delivery runs throughout the year. There is different programming depending on the time of the year.  You can find out more about our past pop up shows here.
