Two-show subscription packs for the 75th season of Theatre Under the Stars (“TUTS”) are now on sale, presenting Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and West Side Story in Stanley Park’s picturesque Malkin Bowl.
A beloved Vancouver tradition since 1940, two-show subscription packs for TUTS are now on sale. These packages allow audiences to secure their seats to both productions for one great price.
“The summer of 2015 was our most successful on record: We welcomed more audiences out to the Malkin Bowl than at any point in our more than 75-year history,” says Naveen Kapahi, TUTS Board President. “We are therefore thrilled to announce the return of both of last season’s much-celebrated directors! Shel Piercy will follow-up his beloved Oliver! with the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast; and Sarah Rodgers, who created 2015’s infectiously fun Hairspray, will direct West Side Story.”
Theatre Under the Stars 2016
Dates: July 6 to August 20, 2016. Performances alternate evenings.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is an enchanting musical for the entire family, and the first Disney film ever to make the leap to stage. The ‘tale as old as time’ follows Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, a young prince transformed by a wicked spell. If the Beast can learn to be loved, the curse will end and he will be restored. But time is running out…
West Side Story is a dynamic reimagining of Romeo and Juliet in the turbulent streets of 1950’s New York. As turf war rages between two rival gangs, a pair of star-crossed lovers find themselves caught in the middle – and tragically wrenched between two worlds.
