Theatre under the Stars brings sensational summer fun! + Ticket #Giveaway!

Theatre under the stars

I absolutely love musical theatre – much to my hubbys dismay. If there is a musical in town chances are I have coveted tickets, watched live performances on youtube, downloaded the soundtrack and can likely be heard humming or singing along throughout my day. I have no shame admitting it either – I love LOVE musicals!

I can’t be the only one either, Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) is celebrating 75 years of song-and-dance filled summer nights this year! 

“This year we present two stories of loveable underdogs and outsiders who find themselves at the centre of big happenings,” says Naveen Kapahi, TUTS Board President. “Our musical selections feel very appropriate for TUTS’ 75th year, which started out as a humble effort to provide entertainment under the auspices of the Vancouver Park Board, but has since grown into one of the city’s most beloved and longstanding traditions.”

This year, you will be treated to two fantastic – iconic shows –  Oliver! The Musical and Hairspray – The Broadway Musical, running July 10 – August 22, 2015 at Stanley Park’s picturesque Malkin Bowl. On alternating evenings, audiences will be transported to brisk, fog-strewn 1840s London or jaunty, sweltering 1960s Baltimore, as the cheery, boisterous casts dirty their clothes and tease their beehives for a full summer of open-air theatre.

Whether you’re a fan of – Hairspray, the triumphant musical with huge heart, which takes audiences back to 1962 Baltimore, where loveable, larger-than-life heroine Tracy Turnblad has one plucky dream: to dance on the local TV program, The Corny Collins Show or Oliver! The Musical as it follows everyone’s favourite orphan on a dramatic adventure through the underbelly of Victorian London you won’t want to miss either as TUTS interweaves a kaleidoscope of elements – setting, scenery, concessions, and quality art – into an encompassing experience much greater than the sum of its parts.

Event Information:

Date: July 10 to August 22, 2015 Performances alternate evenings All shows at 8pm, except on Fireworks Nights, when shows begin at 7pm

Ticket prices: $30 – $45

Address: Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park 610 Pipeline Rd. Vancouver, BC
