Theatre Terrific: Romeo and Juliet

Listen with ReadSpeaker

Date: November 3rd, 2018 starting at 2:00PM
Location: Woodwards Atrium, 111 West Hastings Street, Vancouver (Click for map)

We looked at the famous play, Romeo and Juliet, and decided that what really mattered were the two tribes that kept Romeo and Juliet apart. So…our cast and crew of all cultures, abilities and genders built a musical work that dances, sings, and tells a humorous quirky fierce story of two tribes and what keeps them apart. We decided the Woodwards Atrium, a crossroads where tourists, office workers, homeless, artists, street vendors, parents, children, sales people, students and every label of society pass each other every day, was the perfect place to ask: “What keeps us apart and what can bring us together?”

Join us on December 3, 2018 as we wrap up Project EveryBODY 2018 with PEBcelebrateslive, Vancouver’s annual celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities combined with The Film and Performing Arts Festival. It’s Vancouver’s FREE community celebration and with something for EveryBODY, this is a celebration you cannot miss!

Gathering dozens of local artists and drawing hundreds of people each year, PEBcelebrateslive is an important platform for emerging and established artists of diverse abilities to express their creative voice and share their stories with one another, and with the broader community. This is done in order to change common perceptions about abilities and disabilities.

(Note: More information will be available when the event gets closer.)

Relaxed performances at the Cultch

The Cultch is implementing accessible performances starting this fall. (i.e.  “relaxed” performances for those with Autism, Tourette’s & other neurological conditions who cannot sit still & quiet for an hour or more). They have scheduled a relaxed show of the Panto on Dec 2, matinee.

Link to Accessibility information:

Normally, the Panto is already a kid-friendly show where they are encouraged to cheer & boo for characters & talk back to the stage. Each Panto is based on a classic fairy tale or kids’ story, this year it’s Wizard of Oz. It’s a really fun show for adults too, with lots of double entendres & local cultural references & spoofs of local characters, politicos etc.
