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 2023, Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) two shows are Matilda: The Musical and The Prom.

This family-friendly show is sure to delight audiences of all ages. Precocious Matilda has always felt like she was born into the wrong family. While her parents and siblings stir up schemes, she wants to be left alone to spend her days in the comfort of reading. Matilda’s teacher, Ms. Honey, quickly realizes that Matilda is a brilliant little girl and encourages her learning, while her headmistress, the tyrannical Ms. Trunchbull, seems intent of creating misery for children.

This is a timeless story of the power of imagination and the magic of connecting with a caring teacher. Filled with toe-tapping musical numbers, brilliant choreography, and a whole cast of exceptionally talented kids (and adults), Matilda: The Musical is a hilarious show for families full of magic and mischief.

Do you have teens in your midst who love musical theatre? Or maybe you are looking for the perfect show for date night? The Prom is a contemporary musical full of heart and hope! Premiering on Broadway in 2018, this audience-favourite has already been made into a movie and draws in large crowds across North America.

Four down-on-their-luck Broadway actors are desperate to improve their public image when they come across a trending tweet from a teenager in small-town America. The teenager, Emma, is upset because her conservative high school has cancelled prom over her decision to attend with her girlfriend. Taken straight from the headlines, The Prom masterfully balances unabashed hopefulness, heartfelt vulnerability, and hard-hitting hilarity.

This performance contains difficult subject matter and mature themes that could be triggering to some people. This includes religious and political commentary, suggestive language, and some use of profanity.

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