Bard in the Valley (BIV) offers affordable and accessible quality productions and promotes enthusiasm for the works of Shakespeare in Langley and Abbotsford. To this end, BIV stages by-donation performances and free educational theatre camps in the Fraser Valley. It would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers. You can ensure that Bard in the Valley continues to fulfill its mission by sponsoring a Legacy Chair. When you sponsor a Legacy Chair, we add a nameplate to the back of the chair. Your Legacy Chair, honouring you, your family or a loved one, will be used at every performance for five years.
We've created the Legacy Chair fundraiser in honour of our visionary founder, Allan Thain. Allan started Bard in the Valley to share his passion for live theatre with the community. Using his money and generous contributions from fellow Rotarians, Allan staged BIV's first production in 2010. This season marks the 10th year of Allan's passing. His legacy continues.
