This summer an exciting Bollywood Wedding is coming to town and everyone is invited! This interactive outdoor theatre experience is presented by South Asian Arts in partnership with the PNE from July 17th until July 28th at the Italian Gardens at Hastings Park.
Written by Raakhi Sinha and Gurpreet Sian with Camyar Chai, this lively production will take place in a beautiful outdoor setting, which I’ve previously listed as one of the city’s hidden gems. Moving from one location to another, various scenes of the play include the engagement, mehndi, maiyan, milni and of course the wedding itself. The evening will end with a big, interactive dance party at the wedding reception.
A hit with critics and audiences alike and awarded the “Best Outdoor Interactive Theatre Event” by The Georgia Straight, South Asian Arts is excited to announce the return of Bollywood Wedding. This is your invitation to see the most unique wedding of the year.
Be part of an elaborate & hilarious, outdoor, interactive dance and theatre event as two young Indians are brought together in an arranged marriage. Indian weddings are colourful and extravagant with fabulous clothing, an occasional melt down, some serious drama and lots of dancing. You’ll see all of that with our cast of 12 amazing actors, along with the always dazzling Shiamak dance team.
The wedding will take place on Wednesday, July 17th (2 for 1 preview), July 18th to 21st, and July 24th to 28th at 8:00pm. Saturdays and Sundays during that span will also have 2:00pm matinees. The show is $35 adults, $20 seniors and children (12 & under) plus applicable service charges. Tickets are available online now.
