Win Tickets to Theatre Under the Stars

Comments 108 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Theatre Under the Stars (“TUTS”) is ramping up for another season of entertainment at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park. Tickets are now on sale for this summer’s shows: Oliver! The Musical and Hairspray – The Broadway Musical running on alternating evenings, July 10 to August 22, 2015.

TUTS 2015 Season

TUTS VancouverCelebrating 75 years of song-and-dance filled productions, TUTS shines the spotlight on two of Broadway’s adored underdogs – one, a loveable orphan, the other an unexpected teenage heroine with big heart and big dreams.

Transporting audiences to Baltimore circa 1962, Hairspray joins the always-optimistic Tracy Turnblad in her dreams of starring on local TV program, The Corny Collins Show. From Director Sarah Rodgers, this colourful cast features Erin E. Walker (Tracy Turnblad), Andy Toth (Edna Turnblad), Chris D. King (Corny Collins), and Dustin Freeland (Link Larkin), among many more.

From Director Shel Piercy, Oliver! – based on Dickens’ iconic novel – follows a young orphan on a harrowing adventure through the streets of Victorian London, starring Stephen Aberle (Fagin/Mr. Brownlow), Damon Calderwood (Bill Sykes/Mr. Bumble), E. Marie West (Nancy), and Carly Ronning in her TUTS debut as Oliver. As a thrilling addition prior to performances, the Malkin Bowl will be fully transformed into an 1840s Village Country Fair, treating audiences to authentic food stalls, foot races, sing-a-longs, and more.

Enjoy an evening in Stanley Park, Vancouver’s crown jewel, grab a grilled salmon dinner at Malkin Bowl’s Garden Cafe, and be entertained in the open air on a warm summer night.

Theatre Under the Stars has been a mainstay of Vancouver summertime entertainment since 1940 when it was the premiere event at the Malkin Bowl when it first opened up. In the early 1960s production shut down but the TUTS company was revived by enthusiasts in 1969. Things came to a halt once again in 1982 when the Malkin Bowl was ravaged by fire but TUTS soldiered on.

    My son performed as Fagen in the school production of Oliver a month ago at his elementary school. He would LOVE to see the production of Oliver in the “TUT” environment. I would love to win tickets to Oliver so I can take him. Thanks.
