Summer is officially here, schools out, the sun is shining, for most of us its our favourite time of year. We start to plan out our must dos of the summer and our bucket lists grow longer and longer each and every day. We’ve already checked off berry picking from our list, and continue to fill it with fun activities such as beach days, trips to spray parks and picnic dinners. Our annual family camping trip is still up in the air, as the timing with baby #2 might be to close, so this means we have to fill our summer fun with more day trips and local activities.
One of the day trips that tops my list would be spending a day in Stanley Park, definitely not very far to go, but there is so much to do and see! I would love to start the day by renting bikes and riding around the sea wall. Then set up camp by Second Beach and enjoy a picnic lunch and take advantage of the pool the as the day get hotter. The only way to end such a fun filled day would be to enjoy an outdoor show with Vancouvers Theatre Under the Stars at Stanley Parks Malkin Bowl.
With 75 years of song and dance filled summer nights, Theatre Under the Stars is back again to entertain Vancouver families. With nightly showings running from July 10th to August 22nd, alternating between Hairspray – Broadway Musical and Oliver! – Broadway Musical, you’re sure to be in for a good time.
Theatre Under the Stars, also referred to as TUTS, is a non profit organization, with over 300 volunteers assisting with the productions. In true Vancouver tradition the nightly shows run rain or shine, and are just over two and a half hours long. While everyone who purchases a ticket gets a seat inside the theatre, you also have the option of sitting on the grassy slope. And yes, picnicking is allowed! What better way to spend a summer evening than enjoying a picnic under the stars while taking in a Broadway Musical?
