About us

The Beach House Theatre Society consists of a group of creative and talented theatre industry members whose productions offer the audience a cultural, artistic experience in the glorious natural setting of Blackie Spit at Crescent Beach, B.C. The purpose of setting the production in the area is to connect the arts with the local community, to inspire artistically minded youth and to expose theatre-goers to the special charm of Crescent Beach. This is an excellent opportunity for the community to host an exciting summer event while boosting its profile as a progressive supporter of the arts.

By bringing together the community, arts and culture, and the natural beauty of Crescent Beach, the Beach House Theatre Society will inspire not only theatre-goers but local youth. The production will involve a wide range of local performing artists, designers, technicians and producers, with a goal of providing learning opportunities for youth to work alongside theatre professionals. The importance of providing arts education to youth is an integral part of the Beach House Theatre Company’s mandate.

Sebastien Galina, Web Developer, Social Media Manager

Sebastien Galina
Djangonaut • Post Production Supervisor • Advertising Copywriter. In a nutshell, I love computers and use them daily for creating works of art; however that doesn't stop me from breaking out the traditional paper and pen for doodling ideas. After studying computing science, networking technology and application level web design, I furthered my education in branding and graphic design. Now I apply all these elements into my job, supervising creative and facilitating others in developing strong visuals to match. Automation is key, and when a Python script can be written, it should. I use Python and the Django Framework when developing web sites and web applications for Boldly Creative Agency, Inc. including all it's web portals and it's official webpage.

Benjamin T. Stone, Graphic Designer

Benjamin T. Stone
I just take that to mean that I care when something is done well and made to last. Past lives as a theatre actor and later a school teacher have taught me the necessity of storytelling and the skill to guide a crowd on a journey. With a deep sense of nostalgia and a craving for tangible, I approach each task with an incurable personal investment and a workman-like disposition towards getting the job done. Visit Benjamin T.
