wardrobe | director's notes

The notes from director Kerri Norris about THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE.

I remember reading the Chronicles of Narnia as a child and loving the books but The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in particular. There is something about that story, contained on its own outside of the rest of the series that resonated and stayed with me. The idea of a commonplace wardrobe being a portal to a world that at first seems to be a dream but becomes all too real. The battle between dark and light, redemption and betrayal, and a world trapped in a blanket of winter. (I did live in Saskatchewan however so my dislike of the cold and snow was probably heavily influenced by the weather outside.) But it was a story of my childhood and as with other childhood things it was set on my shelf, a memory I could revisit when nostalgic.

Now, my daughters love stories. They love to hear stories we make up when we are in the dark of our tent curled up in our sleeping bags or cuddled all together at home with pillows piled all around. And books. Any book, short, long, with pictures or without. So my husband and I started when they were very young pulling out our favourite books from the shelf and reading aloud to them. I’d loved these stories as a child and wanted to share the feelings they inspired within me. Then we introduced them to the world of Narnia. There is something about seeing that world again through the eyes of a child. Magic is always the word that comes to mind. And wonder. And acceptance. That doesn’t mean there weren’t a lot of “Why?” and “How?” throughout but they never questioned that the magic was real or that miracles happen.

So you can imagine the excitement when they found out that I was Directing. First they wanted to know if they could attend rehearsals (No!) and if they could come see the show (Yes!). And then they took turns being Lucy, Edmond, the Witch and Aslan. They fought the darkness, were brought back to life and helped their mother believe again with unbounded enthusiasm that there is magic to be found anywhere one chooses to find it.

nov 30 | kelly joe phelps

Ridiculously short notice about this, but I only just heard. Steve Dawson produced his last record. If you know about KJP, you'll know that you don't want to miss this. 

North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts presents Kelly Joe Phelps

  • November 29 - November 29
  • North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts
  • 2055 Purcell Way
    North Vancouver, BC V7J 3H5
  • Venue: North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts

Kelly Joe Phelps is an uncommonly original artist. While there are shades of many formative folk and blues artists, such as Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt and Jim Fahey in his music, his singular guitar style and vocals are uniquely and unmistakably his own. His music has plenty of gristle and bone, also glory, salvation and grace. His latest recording, Brother Sinner and the Whale (2012), hearkens back to his earlier recordings featuring Phelps on bottleneck slide guitar. With all his talents ablaze, Kelly Joe Phelps is set to tear it up and bring it all back home.

dec 12-22 | hotel bethlehem | ruby slippers

PT's wonderful friends and sponsors John Fluevog Shoes are great patrons of the arts - including support of Ruby Slippers Theatre, who have a Christmas offering that looks like a lot of fun. And keep your ears open: the two companies have been scheming a co-production of another show for a couple seasons now. But meanwhile....

Ruby Slippers Theatre
Hotel Bethlehem
by Drew McCreadie

Back by popular demand! Hotel Bethlehem dares to deconstruct the Nativity Story through satire and insightful humanity. It's back this Christmas! It is probably the one and only existential Christmas comedy that will have you belly-laughing for two hours. Directed by Diane Brown.

Have you ever wondered why The Inn was full? Who was the cad that would turn away a VERY pregnant woman? What kind of characters and shenanigans were they up to that this could happen? Surprisingly, no one has asked these questions until now. Hotel Bethlehem offers a fresh and hilarious take on this traditional tale, one that features shepherds contemplating sheep lotteries, Three Kings evading taxation, virgins, ridiculous Roman soldiers and a blind census-taker. Oh yea, and a couple of births.

Farce meets satire meets holiday fare in this entertaining and fun Christmas comedy starring eleven of Vancouver's finest performers: Stephen Beaver, Scott Bellis, Tim Carlson, Alex Diakun, Dustin Freeland, Jennifer Mawhinney, Sean McQuillan, John Murphy, Byron Noble, Kris Novak and Alvin Sanders.

"Joseph and his wife Mary arrive at an inn, where a couple of old Jewish shepherds are trying to deliver a lamb in the stable using a silent water birth. After that, things get wacky. John Murphy plays the innkeeper like a prototypical Basil Fawlty." Colin Thomas

nov 20-dec 1 | picture this! | twu

The students at TWU have created another piece of theatre called PICTURE THIS!  Check out the press release below to see what these young thespians are up to.

“Picture This!” Zooms in on Family Quirks and Ordinary Heroes

Nine strangers, desperately trying to get home for Christmas, are trapped with nothing to do but exchange bizarre family stories and make up songs about them. It’s a brand new play called Picture This!, premiering at Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture.

Running November 20 through December 1, this heartwarming show brings together twists of fate, original music, embarrassing childhood stories, beloved family traditions, and tales of ordinary heroes. Promising fun whether you love or hate the holidays, the script was written by an ensemble of Theatre students under the leadership of award-winning director Angela Konrad.

“We all wonder what other people’s families are like, especially around the holidays,” Konrad said. “This show gives us an opportunity to be a fly on the wall in others’ homes, and also to see the power that telling our stories can have in the lives of others, often in ways we don’t expect.”

Through vivid flashbacks and original music, Picture This! explores funny adventures and touching moments that come out of the performers’ own experiences. Parent/child dynamics, sibling rivalry, lessons from family history, embarrassing encounters… maybe this is why our parents told us not to talk to strangers!

“The students have cooked up a show for all generations; one that promises to surprise, inspire, and entertain,” said Konrad.

So is it fact or fiction? Konrad said, “This show may contain true stories or absurd fabrications. Or both!”

Picture This! is created by a multi-talented ensemble that includes director Konrad, stage manager Sharra Ganzeveld, and performers Brandon Bate, Tiffany Choi, Megan Couch, Eleanor Felton, Daniele Neve, Bryan Sandberg, Margaret Thorpe, Jane Townsend, and Shelby Wyminga.

Playing November 20 – December 1 at 7:30pm Tues-Sat with 2:00pm Saturday matinees. Special discounts on Tuesdays. For tickets and information, visit or email

Make sure to let the staff know you're seeing a show when you head over to the restaurant - they'll make sure you get out in time.

dec 15 | el nino

Got an email today from a PT friend who's in the Vancouver Bach Choir about a very Soul-Foody performance they're doing. Below is a snippet of his letter, explaining the concert in detail.

It's a Christmas-themed oratorio, vaguely on the order of Handel's Messiah, but with a more modern score, and very much a modern sensibility, focusing on Mary's perspective on the nativity, and including non-Biblical sources relating the standard story to modern audiences. (I.e. it includes poetry about colonialism and 20th century civil disobedience and police brutality.)

It's a huge work, with multiple choirs, several soloists, the and the Vancouver Symphony. I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea: that this concert is not only really interesting and mind-blowingly beautiful, but pretty grand-scale for the local music scene, so I'm going out on a limb and recommending it (highly) to those who don't regularly attend choral concerts or get into Christian-themed events.

You can get tickets at or by phone at 604.696.4290.

nov 15-dec 1 | race | craig erickson

RACE, featuring PT actor Craig Erickson (he'll be back on our stage in the new year for Lucia Frangione's LEAVE OF ABSENCE), opened this week.  Below is a note about the show, straight from Craig himself.

Some promo for a show I'm in: David Mamet's RACE.
It is directed by David Mackay, and features Aaron Craven, Marsha Regis and Kwesi Ameyaw

This is a provocative, well-written, in-your-face, coarse, hilarious 80 minute blast of truth-telling (or not). It may not be your cup of tea.

This is a play for people:

who are interested in justice, and our judicial system.
who are fascinated by race relations in North America
who are interested in the ways we humans categorize others
who are sick of friends or family in their lives who don't say how they actually feel.

who don't like plays.

Runs until DEC. 1st - Tues - Saturday 8pm

STUDIO 16 - 1555 WEST 7th ( just west of Granville on 7th)

nov 20 | show and tell | andrea loewen

Another staff-side-project! Andrea's theatre company Xua Xua Productions is launching a new event: SHOW & TELL. It's just what it sounds like: a return to elementary school where you bring an object you care about and tell its story.

Remember back when fruit rollups were currency, jump rope was the cardio of choice, and nap time was not only allowed but encouraged? When, once a year, you got to show off your new My Little Pony, the dinosaur fossil your aunt gave you or your front tooth that got knocked out in gym class? Remember how awesome / nerve racking / invigorating it felt to stand up in front of your class and share something that truly mattered to you and see your friends do the same?

Join us for a night of sharing and learning about the little things that matter to you, your friends, your neighbours and that random guy you sometimes see on the bus.

nov 30-dec 30 | gifts of the magi | chemainus theatre

Our friends at Chemainus are staging THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI this Christmas! This one features Kaylee Harwood - a TWU alum who may not have been in a PT show yet, but is definitely a part of the PT family.  Press release and info below.

The Gift Everyone Wants to Unwrap is Coming to The Chemainus Theatre Festival

CThe Christmas of 2012 will be undeniably merry when The Chemainus Theatre Festival opens The Gifts of the Magi, November 30 to December 30, 2012. Based on a timeless love story by O. Henry, the Mark St. Germain musical is known to be “crisp and entertaining" (NY Daily News), and is renowned for bringing “a laugh to the throat and a misty tear to the eye of theatregoers, young or old" (NY Tribune). With festive songs and dancing, and an amusing (yet thoughtful) story line, The Gifts of the Magi calls forth the “true” spirit of Christmas.

A story both familiar and fresh, The Gifts of the Magi is a 1920's-era retelling of the Biblical tale of the Magi (wise men who bestowed gifts of great meaning on the new-born King). Set in cold and unfriendly New York City, the musical centres upon the struggles of down-on-their-luck couple Jim and Della Young. Despite eking out a frugal life in their modest apartment, the husband and wife both secretly wish to prove their love by giving the perfect Christmas gift. Unfortunately, their passion comes at a price they do not have the means to afford.

With no more than one dollar and eighty-seven cents between them, both Jim and Della must decide whether to part with their own most precious possession in order to acquire their holiday surprise. Christmas Eve brings complications to a head when the couple finally exchange their thoughtful - yet useless – presents and ultimately unwrap a gift much more precious.

For theatregoers who are looking to kindle their holiday spirit, The Gifts of the Magi provides humour, heart and the gift everyone wants… to unwrap the true meaning of Christmas.

Tickets are available for evening (Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday - 7:30 p.m., Friday, Saturday - 8:00 p.m.) and matinee (Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday - 2:00 p.m.) performances from November 30th to December 30th. Purchases can be made online at, or by calling The Chemainus Theatre Festival box office at 1-800-565-7738.

wittenberg | director interview

Here's a (very) brief Q&A with WITTENBERG director Stephen Drover.

What excites you about the script of Wittenberg?

This is a play with big ideas delivered in a very playful way. It starts with a light-hearted premise (Martin Luter and Faust have drinking arguments) but goes to some pretty deep places. It's one of the most "post-modern" plays I've ever read, bringing together characters from history and different literary sources to duke out some intelligent and provocative debate with a very contemporary mind. Smart and fun stuff.

This is your second "extended staged reading" at Pacific Theatre – what is challenging about this kind of production?

Pulling something like this together takes a lot of things off the table. With two and a half days of prep with actors and next-to-no production resources, there is not a lot of discussion about the play or negotiating design. There is really just enough time to walk the actors through where they will stand and sit. The interesting thing is that it really does put the script front and centre to speak for itself. Sometimes this works beautifully and other times it shows you where you could get real magic if you could work it a bit more. It’s actually a fantastic warm-up for a real rehearsal process (if things ever turn out that way -- which they did with Judas).

wittenberg | responses

"Wittenberg was absolutely brilliant - and excellent script - and so well presented! My friend and I were well challenged and entertained!" | Mae, audience email

"In the end, I felt this performance has it all – great script, fantastic acting, depth of humour and thematical elements, but most importantly it expects much from the audience. Wittenberg captures us on several different levels – the more background you have, the more you can appreciate the depth of this play’s dialogue and central themes and many references. Not a play to be missed, even if you don’t consider yourself an expert on 16th century theology." | Erin Jane, Review Vancouver

"Wittenberg is a play that is as much about ideas as story or characters. It is not a show that can be enjoyed passively, but for the audience member willing to slide to the front of the seat and fully engage their intellect, it is a stimulating, thought-provoking, and deeply rewarding experience." | Brian Paterson, Laura Murray PR

"Wittenberg, Pacific Theatre’s latest offering, was a surprisingly educational (and entertaining) way to spend Halloween." | Alyzee, Being Emme

"Put together the man who sold his soul to the devil, the orphaned prince who strolls through graveyards talking to ghosts and contemplating suicide and murder, and the father of the Protestant Reformation – on the very anniversary of his posting “95 Theses” – and you have a perfect play for All Hallow’s Eve." | Carol Heynnen, The MB Herald

"Wittenberg reads like an old-fashioned parlor game where guests are asked if they could have dinner with anyone through history, who it would be. Playwright David Davalos answers a version of that question for himself by assembling Doctor Faustus (Anthony F. Ingram), Martin Luther (Marcus Youssef) and Hamlet (Mack Gordon) at Germany’s Wittenberg University in the early 16th century... There are some wonderful performances." | Mark Robins, GayVancouver.Net

nov 12 | big easy express | mumford & sons

Lots of Soul Food in Mumford & Sons. 
Roll away your stone, I'll roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find...
Cause you told me that I would find a hole
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal...
It seems that all my bridges have been burnt
But you say that's exactly how this grace thing works
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with the restart
Here's a movie they're in.

VanCity Theatre
Mon Nov 12, 8:50pm
(2012, USA, Emmett Malloy) 67 min

3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of track… the Big Easy Express documents a cinematic musical journey. Directed by renowned filmmaker Emmett Malloy (The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights) this new film captures indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee’s Old Crow Medicine Show, and Britain’s acclaimed Mumford & Sons, as they embark on a beautiful vintage train in California, setting out for New Orleans, Louisiana on a “tour of dreams”. The resulting film from this journey is nothing short of magical.

“An infectiously joyful account of a whistle-stop tour…” Variety
“Full of warmth, good music and good vibes that will make you feel like a part of the party while sad that you missed it.” MTV News
"Scintilating." Hollywood Reporter
