Parliamentary Players Program

Parliamentary Players Program

​​​​​​During the busy summer season of June to early September, four prominent personalities from British Columbia's past are brought back to life for our visitors. These engaging performers shine a light on historical characters and events that helped to shape and define the province of British Columbia. Dressed in period costumes, these student actors appear on tours and deliver lively, historically accurate monologues. The Parliamentary Players also interact with visitors along the front driveways and lawns of the Parliament Buildings each day throughout the summer months.

*New for Fall 2016: Enjoy a Friday tour with a Parliamentary Player. Please inquire for times and availability upon your arrival or call 250-387-6668 for inquiries about tour booking.

Each spring the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia invites post-secondary students from across Canada to participate in the Parliamentary Players Program.

Parliamentary Players must be enrolled at an accredited post-secondary institution, must have theatrical experience, and must be able to convincingly portray historical characters and creatively ad-lib with visitors.
