This year, rain or shine, I will be volunteering at Theatre Under the Stars. This annual summer live theatre event will be featuring two alternating musicals at Malkin Bowl at Stanley Park. Bye Bye Birdie is set in the 1960’s as all teenages across North America are going crazy for “Elvis Presley-style” rock star Conrad Birdie. Meanwhile, “Anything Goes” takes place on the S.S. American, which is sailing from New York to England. A cast of wacky passengers include a ganger, a wealthy debutante and her mother, a nightclub singer and a wealthy New York businessman.
Make It! The Handmade Revolution is back again for their 5th Vancouver show from April 15 to 17 at the Croatian Cultural Centre (3250 Commercial Drive). Tickets are $5 at the door (kids under 12 are free). Print out the below coupon for $2 off at the door.
Monthly arts market Portobello West’s new location at Creekside Community Centre (#1 Athletes Way) in the Olympic Village is probably more convenient to get to than their previous location at Rocky Mountain Station.
For its 65th season, the iconic Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) will be bringing rock and roll to the Malkin Bowl with the story of a teen heartthrob drafted into the army in Bye Bye Birdie. This 1960s musical is a perfect complement to TUTS’ other production, Anything Goes, which is a play set to the music of legendary America composer Cole Porter.
