SOPAC is available for anyone to book!
Since we are a school division facility, we do give first rights of refusal to our schools. Any of our schools, and other institutions can book through the online form, and will be placed in the calendar if possible. For dates in the following school year, requests should be made in the month of MAY. The calendar closes May 31 as dates are being planned, and will be made public approximately June 2nd of each year.
Here is the booking form link: BOOKING FORM
For community users:
Businesses and other groups, the same form is used. Plesae fill out ALL information on the form.
We can't take booking requests by phone, email or in person, the online form is the only acceptable method. Please note, filling out the form does NOT gaurantee your date. You will receive an email within a few business days with either a confirmation or in some instances, a date not available.
We can only book 1 year at a time. For the upcoming year, please send in your dates in April so we have them all together to slot in as best as possible with out school dates.
May, and June are VERY busy months for the theatre, and predominantly only weekends will be available for the public. We apologize, we can't accommodate every request.
Why your date may not be available:
- Schools have booked it already.
- It's during our school season, but we haven't closed our booking yet. ( May 31, is the final deadline for schools)
- It's a long weekend, or holiday.
- There are multiple community groups wanting the same date, in which case a draw will be made, it is not first come first serve
To find out if a date is available before you book:
You can click on the events calendar to see what is booked. It is updated EVERY week and is a good starting point. It will be accurate from July to July, not past.
The big update happens in the first few days of June where we changeover to the next years' school calendar, and at that point any date that shows availability, is up for grabs!
School booking procedure:
The booking procedure is available on the 7 oaks portal, staff please log in to see the details of that. There will be a reminder email with the updated priority years sent out in April. We do still recommend talking with the other performing arts teachers and trying as best as possible to prevent overlaps in productions.
The 2019-2020 season had NINE productions, so it becomes very hard to schedule them all in.
