Remembering Allan Thain

Bard in the Valley was founded by Allan Thain in 2010. A visionary, Allan directed and co-produced the first two Bard in the Valley productions – A Midsummer Night’s Dream and As You Like It.

Allan passed away suddenly in December 2013. We miss his advice, enthusiasm, pithy conversation and sense of humour. His legacy lives on.
