Under the Rainbow Family Weekend at the Massey Theatre

Family Weekend at the Massey Theatre

Our family loves the theatre and we are always looking for ways to expose our sons to varied types of performances, actors, and venues. If you share a theatrical interest, Family Fun Vancouver highly recommends spending the Family Day Weekend at the Massey Theatre in New Westminster. On February 14 & 15, families across Metro Vancouver are invited to celebrate diversity by attending three unforgettable productions: a fabulous iconic film, The Wizard of Oz, and a contemporary Indigenous opera created with young ones in mind, The Flight of the Hummingbird, and Parents are a Drag, a multigenerational queer family performance which was a smash hit during the 2019 Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

Massey Theatre - Flight of the HummingbirdFlight Of the Hummingbird:

The Flight of the Hummingbird is based on an indigenous parable from the Quechuan people of South America. The story of the brave hummingbird travelled through pre-contact trade routes to become well known within Haida culture. Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria have collaborated to co-commission and co-produce a new opera for young audiences with music by Maxime Goulet and libretto by Michael Nicoll Yahuglanaas (Haida) and Barry Gilson. This opera is influenced by the graphic novel written by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas and will include elements of his dramatic Haida-manga illustrations. The opera is 45-minutes in length and features four singers and a small ensemble. Created for young audiences (suitable for students aged 5 – 15), The Flight of the Hummingbird is a beautiful contemporary performance. Tickets are $12 (adults), $7 (students).
