Western Gold Theatre presents one Mainstage Production and two On Our Feet (OOF!) Staged Readings per year.

Our Mainstage production is the anchor to our season, offering exciting, vibrant, and thought-provoking theatre starring some of the top seasoned theatre artists in Vancouver.

On Our Feet (OOF!) Stage Reading Series offers four performances of each play with all the hallmarks of a full production: intricate blocking, designed sets, costumes, and music. The only difference is that the actors carry their scripts. We meet Tuesday and open Friday; after 30 hours of rehearsal, we’re up and running!

Funny Money

by Ray Cooney
Directed by Anna Hagan
March 25 – 27, 2022
PAL STUDIO THEATRE

Never has this master of farce been frenetically funnier! Henry Perkins accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase—one full of money! Assuming it’s illicit cash, he keeps it and rushes home to book one-way fares to Barcelona. But then, a detective rings the doorbell . . . uh-oh! A man with bullet holes in his head and Henry’s briefcase were found in the Thames. Madcap hilarity ensues!

Triumph of Love

by Pierre Carlet de Marivaux, adapted by Stephen Wadsworth
Directed by Anna Hagan
June 24 – 26, 2022
PAL STUDIO THEATRE

You’ll love this splendid translation of a classic Marivaux comedy about love! Written in 1732, it follows a princess as she adopts the dress and prerogatives of a man, invades the retreat of a rationalist philosopher who hates love, and wins the prince of her dreams. Gender confusion is pivotal in the hilarious situations that ensue as the emotional stakes rise. The language is magnificent and the characters fascinating, including Marivaux’s adaptation of the wily idiot Harlequin.

Seventeen

by Matthew Whittet
Directed by Michael Fera
November 3 – 20, 2022
PAL STUDIO THEATRE

Western Gold presents the North American premiere of Matthew Whittet’s ground-breaking play Seventeen in which veteran stage actors take on the roles of teenagers and revisit what it is like to be young and on the brink of life at a pivotal moment.

Picture a school playground after the end of the very last day of school just before everyone moves on. As dawn approaches, through a fog of cheap beer dreams are shared, insecurities aired, and secrets spilled. For each character it is a phoenix moment—everything is about to change! But tonight, they drink, they dance, they shout, and they love. Seventeen provides a sense of déjà vu and brilliantly turns our notions of adulthood and adolescence on their head.

Tickets for individual shows will be available in 2022
