2016-2017 season announcement

We are thrilled to announce our 2016-2017 Season!  The season features three world premieres and some exciting partnerships with local companies.  Subscribe now online or by calling 604-731-5518.


A GOOD WAY OUT by Cara Norrish • Sept 23-Oct 15 • WORLD PREMIERE!
Joey is a hardworking mechanic trying to support his family. He thought joining a biker gang was his only option, but now things have changed and he’s looking for choices that no longer exist.

With only one tiny suitcase to accompany her, Maki leaves Korea to search for a new home in Canada. What follows is an incredible journey of placement, replacement, and displacement, told with winsome vulnerability and plucky humour.

HOLY MO: A CHRISTMAS SHOW by Lucia Frangione • Dec 2-31 • WORLD PREMIERE!
Folly, Guff, and Buffoona are back! A reverently irreverent re-imagining of the Nativity story, told with gusto and a varying commitment to accuracy by three beloved fools. A long-awaited sequel to past hits Holy Mo and Holy Mo and Spew Boy.

CHRISTMAS PRESENCE • Dec 12, 13, 19, 20 (Valley: Dec 17)
Pacific Theatre’s favourite holiday tradition: all-you-can-eat feast of music and stories for the holidays featuring our favourite local musicians.

CORLEONE by David Mann • Feb 3-25
a guest production by Classic Chic Productions
Power, love, and betrayal: what if Shakespeare wrote The Godfather? Pacific Theatre partners with one of Vancouver’s most exciting new companies, Classic Chic Productions, for an all-female take on a take of this classic mob story.

VALLEY SONG by Athol Fugard • Mar 24-Apr 8
Pacific Theatre presents a Gateway Theatre production
In post-apartheid South Africa, Abraam “Buks” Jonkers continues to till land he will never own, while his granddaughter Veronica dreams of starring on Johannesburg stages.

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR by John Patrick Shanley • May 19-June 10
Anthony and Rosemary have lived in neighbouring farms their entire lives, battling over property lines and inheritances, but never what matters most. A softhearted romantic comedy set in the Irish countryside.


A musical exploration of the life of Christ, featuring a rotating band and readings, much in the style of Christmas Presence.

SIDESHOW • March 3 & 4
Hold onto your hats for another round of improv and sketch comedy with the PT crew. A family-friendly favourite
