One of the most anticipated events in Stanley Park Theatre Under the Stars, TUTS, is a brilliant way to spend an evening with family, friends or even for a cute date night idea. With options to sit in the seating area, or designated picnic area you have the ability to stretch out and relax while you enjoy the show. Snag some delicious snacks, get cozy and always make sure to prep for any weather.
The 2022 season of TUTS has two fantastic musicals that exemplify all of the best aspects of the famous theatrical genre: complex set design, gorgeous costumes, and show-stopping musical performances. Something Rotten! depicts two playwright twins Nick and Nigel Bottom in the Renaissance era, whose hopes of making a great show are dashed by Shakespeare’s extraordinary success. A strange soothsayer predicts a new path for the brothers: creating a completely new style of theatre – the musical! We Will Rock You is set 300 years in the future and chronicles the high-octane story of two misfits, Galileo and Scaramouche, who rise up in their quest for freedom against the diabolical world ruler, Killer Queen.
Something Rotten! is a delightful parody that both celebrates and pokes fun at everything that audiences love about Broadway. Something Rotten! celebrates the musical theatre genre and all of its follies with funny lyrics and a vivid, colourful songbook, referencing timeless classics such as West Side Story, South Pacific, and Les Misérables. The show, which is full of love and playfulness, ultimately reminds us that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

Relaxed Performance Tuesday, July 25th
This year, TUTS is pleased to collaborate with the Canucks Autism Network to present a relaxing presentation of Something Rotten! A Relaxed Performance is intended for anyone who may require a more informal atmosphere to appreciate the theatre, including (but not limited to) those on the Autism Spectrum, people with sensory or communication impairments, neurological disorders, or people with a learning handicap. We will be more easygoing about how our audience perceives the performance, and we will invite all audience members to be mindful of people’s desires to move or make noise.
Tuesday, July 26th is Pride Night.
TUTS is excited to host its fourth annual Pride Night, which serves as the official launch event for this year’s Vancouver Pride Week! “We Will Rock You,” the hard-rocking international success honouring Queer icon Freddie Mercury and QUEEN’s legendary songbook, will be enjoyed by all audiences. Join us for a high-octane sensory feast! TUTS will match all seat cushion and programme donations made on the night in favour of the Vancouver Pride Society.
Make sure you don’t miss out on these brilliant performances this Summer, get tickets early to avoid disappointment.
