The stage: the blank canvas of performance arts. For centuries, Theatre has been a powerful form of artistic expression that captivates audiences and provides endless opportunity for creativity. The timeless performance of an actor presenting a dramatic monologue; the quiet grace and elegance of the ballet; the extravagant costumes and boldness of the opera; the actualization of an imagined world created by set designers — every experience of the theatre is unique and memorable.
From Bard on the Beach to the VSO, experimental theatre to traditional Chinese dance, British Columbia brings the world to your fingertips.

The Festival offers Shakespeare plays, related dramas, and several special events in two performance tents from June through September in open-ended theatre tents against a backdrop of mountains, sea and sky.
Featuring A Comedy of Errors, King Lear, Love’s Labour’s Lost and Shakespeare’s Rebel by C.C. Humphreys.
Named in honour of Port Coquitlam resident and Canadian hero, Terry Fox, the theatre was built in 1999, alongside the new Terry Fox Secondary School, thanks to a partnership between the City of Port Coquitlam and School District 43. At first operated by the school itself, the theatre then became an independent, privately run operation, managed by the Terry Fox Theatre Advisory Group (TAG) which later became the Port Coquitlam Theatre Society. In 2013, School District 43 (Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody) took over management of the theatre.
