E.C.H.O. Players Village Theatre is a non-profit society of dedicated members of the community. Community is what E.C.H.O. Players is all about. Relying upon the talents, creative energy and generosity of individuals and businesses we have been bringing the live theatre experience to the Oceanside area for for over 40 years.
Whether you wish to share the experience from the comfort of your seat in the Village Theatre (home to E.C.H.O. Players since 1974), from the footlights of the stage or from behind the scenes, you will find yourself welcomed into a community of patrons, fellow performers, artists, writers, set designers, and volunteers of every description.

The Pirates of Penzance
April 27 – May 14, 2017
Director: Mari Lyn Kelly
Landing on Vancouver Island after plundering, pillaging, and just being a downright nuisance, the Pirates of Penzance find themselves lost. One pirate, the young and handsome ...
... Frederick, wanders away from his gang of pirates to Qualicum Beach and stumbles upon a gaggle of beautiful maidens and their eccentric father Major-General. We have star-crossed lovers, a run-in with the pirates, lily-livered policemen and mistaken identity, all of which brings this Gilbert & Sullivan musical alive and rollicking with entertainment for the whole family!
Our Goal... "To nurture the love of theatre, we explore, expand and develop theatrical talent and we create quality entertainment for our community".
