Theater goes dark Friday as water main problems persist in Petrolia



As work continues on the water main repair on Greenfield Street, Victoria Hall remains without water.

The break occurred Thursday around 5 pm and town crews have been working to repair the problem today. Town hall has been closed but officials were hopeful the evening performances of Black Gold would be able to go ahead. But without water, the theatre is unable to open.


The 6:30 p.m. showing of BLACK GOLD/BLACK DONNELLEY’S scheduled for Feb. 1 in Victoria Hall at 411 Greenfield Street, Petrolia has been cancelled.
