The Chilliwack Players Guild has been part of the Chilliwack theatre tradition for nearly seventy years — in fact, we’ve recently uncovered a newspaper trail that leads us back to late 1931, and it looks as if we may have a connection that’s even older that that. We have compiled a list that’s as complete as we’ve been able to determine, and we’r working on creating separate pages for as many of them as we can. Please take a few minutes to browse through the list at http://playersguild.ca/archives.
We’re an active part of our community, and for many years we have donated an annual scholarship to a University Fraser Valley theatre student. We enjoy a vibrant partnership with the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, where we perform our productions. We’re also longtime members of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council and of Theatre BC.
Please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like more information, or just join us at one of our meetings (see our schedule in the sidebar). We meet at the Guildhall, 45530 Spadina Avenue, in Chilliwack. Light refreshments are served after the meetings, and memberships are generally available at the social events. Hope to see you!
speaking of our history…
…if you have any mementos from past Guild shows that you think someone might like to see, please drop us a line at email@example.com. We’d love to see your souvenirs.

Dreams do come true: The creation of the Guildhall
In July, 2010, Players Guild members watched a dream come true as the east end of the Chilliwack Sports Landing Centre was enclosed and designated by the City of Chilliwack to be leased to us. This was in recognition of our decades-long contributions to the arts community, and of our previous investment in the Chilliwack Arts Centre — the sale of which helped make possible the creation of the beautiful Chilliwack Cultural Centre we all enjoy.
