A Vancouver summer tradition, Theatre Under the Stars brings some of Broadway’s most popular musical productions to Stanley Park’s Malkin Bowl, where audiences enjoy outdoor performances with the temperate rainforest as a backdrop.
Throughout July and August each year, the theatre company puts on performances of two shows, alternating nightly. Past productions include Hairspray, Oliver: The Musical, Legally Blonde, Annie and Jesus Christ Superstar. Theatre-goers are assigned seats for the show, but a pre-show picnic on the grassy banks of Malkin Bowl is a lovely way to start your experience. Either bring your own fixings, or purchase your dinner on-site, along with a glass of wine. Then, sit back and enjoy the show under the night sky.
