Entertainment in the Park
Stanley Park is the royal crown that sits above the City of Vancouver. Mounted in that crown is the Malkin Bowl, the jewel that dazzles from its brim.
The 1,000 acre park was established at Vancouver’s first city council meeting in 1886. It is larger than New York’s Central Park and contains over half a million trees.
Along with the forested areas are 350 acres of recreational space.
Included in these 350 acres is the legendary Malkin Bowl, an outdoor theatre built to resemble the famed Hollywood Bowl in California.
Surrounded by cedars, douglas firs, hemlocks and maple trees, the amphitheatre is the perfect setting for an outdoor concert or summer musical production.
This year’s summer concert series begins this weekend with the U.K’s Massive Attack playing Saturday night.
Other concerts to follow are:
May 31st – LCD Soundsystem
June 4th – Xavier Rudd
June 11th – Metric
June 13th – Metric
August 28th – Vampire Weekend
September 10th – The National
The theater is also home to Theatre Under The Stars or TUTS, as it is known. This production company has been entertaining audiences since 1940, using local, up-and-coming stars, to headline their musicals.
Last year saw the success of both “Annie” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”
This year the company will be presenting “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Singin in the Rain.”
Simmons Mattress Gallery would like to encourage residents of the Lower Mainland and visitors to our beautiful province to get out and experience the thrill of watching live entertainment in a stellar summer setting. We know your bed can be a strong draw, but listening to one of Canada’s hottest indie acts, in the company of raccoons, Canada geese, herons and distant beluga whales, is an opportunity not to be passed up lightly. So bring a blanket and your loved one and take in a show this summer.
You can purchase your tickets through Live Nation.
