Theatre Under the Stars is an event not to be missed. Battling mosquitos, crossing fingers and toes for good weather, and escaping into the magical world of musical theatre is an essential Vancouver summer experience. For 2022 Theatre Under the Stars’ (TUTS) two shows are: Something Rotten! and We Will Rock You!

Theatre Under the Stars - Something Rotten!

Leave reality at the door, and dive head first into a world where William Shakespeare is a Renaissance rock star! Set in the streets of Elizabethan England, Will is a mega superstar whilst his siblings, Nick and Nigel Bottom, are lowly playwrights stuck in his shadow.

Tired of being less than popular Will, the Bottom brothers seek out a mysterious soothsayer to help them write a hit show. They are told to create a brand new form of theatre… the musical!

If you love Broadway and musical theatre, this show is for you! New heights of hilarity and absurdity are reached in this satirical spectacle that pokes fun at every possible musical cliche. Featuring show-stopping song and dance, a wacky cast of characters, and gut-busting comedy, Something Rotten! is a love letter to the sequined, splashy, and spectacular form called the musical.

Theatre Under the Stars - We Will Rock You

It is 300 years in the future. A post-apocalyptic world is ruled by the Globalsoft Corporation and its sinister leader Killer Queen. But a pair of dreamers – Galileo and Scaramouche – are ready to ‘break free’ from this control and mount a rock-and-roll fuelled revolution!

Featuring more than 20 hits from Queen’s iconic songbook including ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Are the Champions’, ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, and many more – the fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality arrives in Stanley Park having rocked more than 16 million audience members around the globe!

Blending the excitement of a musical with the electricity of a concert, We Will Rock You is a high-octane feast for the senses and a triumphant tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time.

Each show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 15-minute intermission.
