Parliamentary Players Program

Parliament Past and Present Travelling Plays

This summer, join the Parliamentary Players on an award-winning interactive theatrical experience that takes visitors around the outdoor grounds of the Legislative Assembly and even back through time!  The Travelling Plays are a perfect complement to your guided tour of the Parliament Buildings, so plan to include this as part of your visit.

Shows last approximately 35 minutes. Please check in with a Tour Guide at the podium on the front driveway if you would like to join.

No advance bookings or tickets required.

The final show of the season will be on Monday, September 4.


Travelling Plays are finished for this season. Please join us again in the summer of 2024.
