“bella-rine : to see beautifully” 

our story

When asked, “What does ‘Bellarine’ mean?” I simply say, “to see beautifully.” My vision has carved Bellarine into a wonderful, safe environment for those wanting to explore their craft, and I want nothing more than to see people enjoy our live performances and take something special away from it. Bellarine continues to prove to be original, and our bold choices make us exciting and engaging to be a part of, whether it is off or on stage.


So share in our enjoyment of the pursual of dreams - join us for our next performance, and discover the magic that has become Bellarine Theatre Company!
