OUR 2023-2024 SEASON

The Trip to Bountiful

March 21, 2024 - April 15, 2024

The Trip to Bountiful by Horton Foote, directed by Ron Reed

 80-year-old Carrie plans to escape her son and his authoritarian wife and return to Bountiful, Texas, her idealized hometown. With a new friend she plans her getaway but alas, home isn’t as she remembers. A master-piece about memory and the universal yearning for home. “I’ve never been more deeply moved by a theat-rical experience of any kind.” Wall Street Journal

The Freedom of the CIty

May 3, 2024 - May 19, 2024

The Freedom of the City – Presented by Vital Spark Theatre

By Brian Friel
​Directed by Joan Bryans
When the police disrupt a peaceful civil rights protest, three unarmed strangers, Lily, a middle- aged mother and two young men, take refuge from the streets and find themselves in the Lord Mayor’s office. As the three settle in, word spreads about its “occupation” and the motley trio are branded as terrorists and their position used to everyone’s advantage except their own.
Yet, while their situation as they hide out is dire, the unsuspecting trio amuse themselves, and us, in true Irish fashion. As Lily says of their time together “Lord, I enjoyed that. The talk was good. Wasn’t the talk good.”
Brian Friel’s hard hitting examination of the nature of power is as relevant as we look at Gaza today as it was during the Troubles of Northern Ireland.
SHOWS RUN Thursday – Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.
Talk back night: Thursday May 9th.
Tickets $15/30/35 will be available at EventBrite. Preview only tickets $15 with promo code “Preview”.
Reservations:  604-224-8007, ext 3 . More info at vitalsparktheatre.com

When We Were Singing

May 31, 2024 - June 23, 2024

When We Were Singing written and composed by Dorothy Dittrich, directed by Roy Surette in association with Touchstone Theatre

A saga of friends and lovers, career crisis and personal angst. It is a story that switches gears in an instant to get at the heart of what makes people tick. When We Were Singing is an investigation of the friendship between four urban-dwelling lost souls. Work, loves, hopes, dreams, fears, failures – the story is pulled from the same source as our own lives. A musical like few others!
