INTRODUCING: STANDING ROOM ONLY THEATRE!
I am so pleased to announce that myself and some wickedly talented friends have started up a theatre company in Vancouver! Standing Room Only Theatre is the newest theatre company to hit the lower mainland and we are so pleased to call Beautiful British Columbia our home…
Standing Room Only Theatre’s mission is to produce established plays, new writing and original work. We want to empower the individual and the collective alike with the experience of theatre in order to challenge and entertain in equal measure. We seek to explore different modes of storytelling and bring a myriad of voices to the stage with energy and our own brand of originality to make the stage our own and keep theatre alive as an arena that tells stories, addresses human issues, encourages creativity and maintains importance in today’s society.
Standing Room Only believes that a voice and a vision are all that is needed to bring the stage alive. The story that lurks deep within every individual is one that yearns to be told, and Standing Room Only want to tell it with vivid imagination, bold creativity and inherent theatricality. Like the melting pot that is Canada, we view the stage as a canvas awash with the voices of artists, characters and the everyman alike; be it charming classics by established playwrights, age-old cultural myths or challenging new writing, every one of them has a place on our stage. We aim to challenge, educate and entertain by bringing these voices to the stage with energy and our own brand of originality.
And in bigger news…we are hosting our FIRST EVENT!! “A Snug Night In” will be an afternoon of Celtic storytelling and music performed by actors, musicians and storytellers from all over the lower mainland. It is being held at 3:00pm on March 9th at the White Rock Elk’s Lodge and is being presented in association with the White Rock Irish Festival!
The event is free of charge and any donations received will go towards helping finance our first production (debuting 2015!) as a theatre company. Come out and meet the newest theatre company to hit Vancouver, have the ‘craic,’ and enjoy a cosy celtic celebration in lieu of the upcoming St.Patrick’s Day!
See you there!
