Saturday July 6, 2023 to Saturday August 26, 2023
Theatre Under The Stars in Stanley Park
Theatre Under the Stars was established in 1940 by a group of local theater people with the goal to produce professional quality musicals during the summer. With over 200 volunteers this not for profit society entertains families through popular musical theatre shows at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park in an atmosphere of inclusion. Theatre Under the Stars is a Vancouver tradition.
This year Theatre Under the Stars is presenting
The Prom and Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical
Four down-on-their-luck Broadway actors are desperate to improve their public image. A trending tweet introduces them to Emma: a small-town teen whose prom has been cancelled because she planned to attend with her girlfriend. Under the guise of social activism, the larger-than-life foursome decide to take up Emma’s cause. But their scheming quickly goes sideways, and they ultimately come to learn what everyone is searching for… a place to belong. A spirited smash hit, The Prom masterfully balances unabashed hopefulness, heartfelt vulnerability, and hard-hitting hilarity!
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical
Set in a small English village, Matilda, a brilliant little girl, is an avid reader with a lively imagination. But to her self-absorbed parents and tyrannical headmistress, she’s nothing more than a nuisance and a troublemaker. Through the support of her kind teacher, Ms. Honey, and the strength of her whimsical storytelling abilities, Matilda uses her newfound magical powers to ‘fight for the right to be a little bit naughty. Featuring toe-tapping songs, outstanding dance numbers, and true theatre magic, Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is a fast-paced adventure perfect for the whole family.
