This season’s Stanley Park-based theatre (located at the Malkin Bowl) presents a duo of entertaining reasons to grab your date, a blanket, and picnic basket brimming full of all the fixings (and a bottle of vino, of course!) on your way to some memorable fun.
Both Shrek: The Musical and Legally Blonde: The Musical are running July 11th through to August 23rd at the historic theatre’s 610 Pipeline Road location.
Theatre Under the Stars is more than just a night out at the theatre and has long been a summertime tradition in Vancouver since its launch in 1940, set to serve up a fun theatrical season filled with awesome performances in a magical, park-side setting.
For the 2014 season, TUTS is eager to present several hit musicals adapted from blockbuster films we’re pretty sure every YP out there has gotten familiar with at some point in time (come on, admit it, who didn’t crush on or want to be Elle Woods?)
Memory in need of a little nudge? Legally Blonde: The Musical (a summer hit of the 2013 season) features an all-in-pink princess Elle Woods who is dramatically dumped by her boyfriend whom she can’t quite let go of and consequently follows to Harvard Law School in an effort to woo him back (ladies, just don’t ever try this at home).
Shrek: The Musical is TUTS’ second production and is a larger-than-life adventure brought to stage that follows an unlikely ogre hero and his loyal sidekick Donkey on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona. It’s a fun-filled comedy loaded with great visual effects, tongue-in-cheek humour, and unforgettable music.
