Learn more about Surrey's performing arts and entertainment.

Surrey Civic Theatres are built on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Coast Salish people including the q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie), q̓ʷɑ:n̓ƛ̓ən̓ (Kwantlen) and se’mya’me (Semiahmoo) Nations. We are honoured to work and learn on land they have stewarded since time immemorial.

About Us

Surrey Civic Theatres are owned and operated by the City of Surrey. Venues include the Main Stage and Studio Theatre inside the Surrey Arts Centre, and Centre Stage located inside Surrey City Hall.

Events held on these stages are both programmed by Surrey Civic Theatres’ staff, as well as presented by organizations and individuals who rent the theatres. Together, they provide the community with a spectrum of performing arts and entertainment options.

Surrey Civic Theatres also support the training and development of emerging artists through performing arts classes and workshops including day camps for children, youth, and adults.

We offer year-round events, activities and programs to introduce young people to the magic of the performing arts. As part of Surrey Civic Theatres family programming, Surrey SPARK Stages offers spectacular performing arts events and activities for kids and families at an annual 3-day weekend event in May and throughout the year. 

Guided by the best practices of performing arts venues in Canada, Surrey Civic Theatres ensures its venues are safe for audiences, artists, and their specialized staff. All venues feature LED lighting to be more sustainable.

Together, the three venues support a busy schedule of high-quality performing arts from classical music and dance from a variety of cultures, through to socially engaged theatre productions for all ages, as well as numerous community events.
