Event Notes


The Trail & District Arts Council, in partnership with The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, is undertaking a 1.2 million safety upgrade to The Bailey Theatre. After four years of planning, we are excited to begin this big and necessary project that will start in August and be completed by mid Jamuary. Our Box Office remains open for ticket sales and pick up.

To bring the theatre up to code a new hanging truss will be installed to allow for equipment and scenery installations, the stage ceiling will be properly fire sealed, a new light rigging system and lights will be installed, and the stage drapery will be updated to fireproof velour curtains. As well, a fall arrest system to the front of house catwalk will be added to protect workers while adjusting lighting fixtures. In addition, the orchestra pit cover and apron risers will be replaced to create an even floor and eliminate the tripping hazard in front of the stage. And finally, all of the electrical outlets above the stage will be rewired and brought up to code, and hanging points for circus acts will be installed to accommodate aerial performers.

For patrons at the theatre it won’t look that different, but patrons and staff can expect a safer and more comfortable experience, as well as some beautiful and more dynamic lighting design, circus acts who will utilize the new hanging points, and a more diverse group of users, renters and artists that we couldn’t welcome into our space until these upgrades were made.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada, BC Arts Council, and the Province of British Coulmbia, The Columbia Basin Trust, RDKB, Area A and B, and of course TDAC.
