2020 Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) Musicals in Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) musical in Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC, Canada

2020-02-26 UPDATE: THE ENTIRE 2020 SEASON OF TUTS HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

During July and August every year, Theatre Under the Starts (TUTS) presents famous musicals in beautiful Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park.  Each year 2 musicals are performed on alternating nights.  All seating is outdoors so be prepared for the weather.  It can get cool at night so bring a sweater and/or an umbrella!

Shows start at 8pm, except on the 3 "Celebration of Light" fireworks nights when they will start at 7pm.  The musicals usually go for about 2.5 hours with a 15-20 break after about 1.5 hours.

There are a few thousand individual seats in a bunch of price categories.  They sell tickets to individual shows or 2 show subscription packs.  Tickets are available at tuts.ca or by calling 1-877-840-0457 (additional $5 per order for phone orders).  For groups of 20+, call 1-604-734-1917.

There is seating "on the hill" on the right-hand side of the venue.  Entry is charged at the lowest fees (e.g. $30 for an adult in 2017).  People bring their own portable seats and/or blankets to sit on.  Usually, there are many families with little kids that sit here.  The only drawback, other than not having a chair provided, is that the view may be limited on the right hand and back side of the stage, i.e. you may not have a completely unobstructed view of the entire stage.

Additionally, there are cushion rentals, photo booth, TUTS museum, and concessions.  You can buy coffee, beer, and wine from booths.  Also, they have a concession stand with a larger selection of food and drink items.
