Four shows at Vancouver Playhouse

Returning by popular demand, we are hosting this year festivities once again at the Vancouver Playhouse!

A classic in its own right, The Vancouver Playhouse has been a staple in Vancouver’s performing arts community since 1962. “Polished and intimate, the Vancouver Playhouse exudes a cozy atmosphere that lends a familial dimension to dance, film and theatre performances. The forward plan of the stage makes the space particularly appealing for acoustically driven performances like chamber music and spoken theatre.”

With ample seats—balcony and the orchestra—you will be able to enjoy the show with comfort. 

The Balcony is Opened! 

With the ample space at The Vancouver Playhouse, this year the VMC has created a new separate price for general admission tickets in the balcony of $35.

These seats offer the wider view of the balcony all while enjoying perfect sound quality; after all, there aren’t any bad seats in the Playhouse! For a more up-close and personal show, general admission orchestra seats will still be available at the regular $45 per ticket amount.

Accessible Seating and Parking

There are 5 wheelchair spaces in the theatre orchestra level. Please note your accessible seating requirements at the ticketing check-out page or contact us at We will try our best to accommodate you and your guests to sit together, but please understanding guests accompanying with wheelchair access might not be sitting adjacent to each other, depending on availability.

Accessible parking is available at the Easy Park Queen Elizabeth Theatre parkade with an accessible parking decal. Accessible parking must be reserved 7-10 days in advance and is subject to availability. Call Easy Park at 1-888-501-1343 (extension 1) for more information or to reserve.

There is an elevator from parking to the QET and Playhouse Hamilton Street entrances which is available 60 minutes before show times.

Patron support
