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

Our Mainstage productions offer 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!

Ever wonder what it would be like to be alive and kicking at 105? In this new comedy, Kathryn Shaw takes you to the Fairfield Residence to meet three women over the age of 105 who have differing responses to their extraordinarily long lives. Based on experience with her own ancient family members, the writer brings insight and humour to the conundrum of extreme old age.

Revisit this beloved classic –revamped! Follow Alice as she dives headlong down the rabbit hole where shadows linger around every bend, and madness waits at the end of every path. Alice comes face-to-face with the likes of the temperamental Red Queen, the eccentric Humpty Dumpty, the enigmatic White Knight, and a host of other unusual characters. It is an exuberant, funny piece of pure theatre, full of truth and an uncanny pertinence to our own topsy-turvy times.

Creativity has no expiry date! ™
