From one of the longest-running musicals of all time to a feel-good tribute to rock ‘n roll, Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) invites audiences to dream big and live boldly this summer. Enjoy CATS and School of Rock on stage at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park this summer.

CATS will be directed by Ashley Wright, who makes his TUTS debut, and choreographed by Julie Murphy. The creative duo will bring a synergistic energy and love for storytelling to this groundbreaking production. A director, actor, and playwright, Wright has directed for Edmonton’s Freewill Shakespeare Festival and Citadel Theatre. Murphy is a Vancouver-based dancemaker, who has choreographed more than 200 dance pieces for live performance. CATS’ music director will be Sean Bayntun, who has worked with TUTS as rehearsal pianist, orchestra player, guest conductor, and as music director for The Prom, in 2023.

Based on the hit 2003 film, School of Rock is a high-voltage, exuberantly loud, feel-good show that showcases the strength of coming together and the irrepressible power of rock ‘n roll. The musical follows wannabe rock star Dewey Finn. Kicked out of his band and facing eviction we watch as he seizes the opportunity to make some quick cash when he’s mistaken for a substitute teacher at a straight-laced, uptight private school. Avoiding the prying eyes of the school’s principal and parents, Dewey teaches his classroom the one thing he knows best: How to rock! In partnership with School of Rock Vancouver, the show will feature local youth musicians in its ensemble cast.

TUTS offers its two-show subscription pack – allowing audiences to secure their seats to both productions for one great price – on sale now through May 17. Subscriptions are $90 for adults and $60 for youth ages 5-12, and include premium tickets to both productions, souvenir programs, and exchange insurance for both nights. Early bird single tickets, from $20, will go on sale May 23.
