“Vancouver Theatre Faces a Real Tragedy,” But You Can Do Something About It!


This issue is very near and dear to me as a performer and musician and theatre lover. The Centre in Vancouver for the Performing Arts is a wonderful theatre downtown for dance (The Goh Ballet), concerts, comedy shows, and the Vancouver Film Festival. But there are signs that this venue might be sold and become a evangelical mega church. I have seen many great shows there and it is an outstanding place to see performances – from the comfortable seating to the great sound system to the twice as many women’s than men’s washrooms! Before it happens though the city council would have to get involved. There is still a chance that we can speak up and change things. Below are links to articles to learn about the venue itself and what is happening with the centre; and links to ways to make your voice heard. The most simple way is to email – mayorandcouncil@vancouver.ca and tell them you want them to help stop this from happening. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL!
