If that’s not your jam, there are 4 other events to do in and around Victoria today, Tuesday May 16th:

Come From Away

With two sold out weeks at the Royal Theatre, Come From Away has broken all Victoria records for ticket sales. By popular demand, another four shows have now been added.

This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

The 2023 Stars on Ice Canadian tour will boast perhaps the three greatest male figure skaters Canada has ever produced. Returning to the tour for the first time in four years is Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist, three-time World Champion, and ten-time National Champion Patrick Chan.

He will join Kurt Browning and two-time Olympic Silver Medalist, three-time World Champion and seven-time Canadian Champion Elvis Stojko to present Canadian figure skating fans with the opportunity to celebrate true iconic greatness on the ice. These three legends will headline one of the most diverse and talented casts presented by Stars on Ice in tour history.
