We have been attending productions by this company for many years now. I suppose it suits our middle-of-the-road tastes, in that while the productions rarely push the edge of the envelope, neither are they the old standbys. We never buy tickets for all of any given seasons' shows, because there are always some in which we're uninterested, most often the... More

Just saw the Avenue Q production. The production was wonderful - as good as when we saw it on Broadway - and the cast and staff were a delight. The theater is well maintained and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house (no issues with columns, etc).

I have been going to Arts Club productions since the early 80's (remember the old Seymour location?). And yet again, they have delivered great theatre with their remounting of their successful AVENUE Q show from 2013/14. The show itself had an all Canadian cast who were magnificent. Wow, nice to know that we can produce Broadway quality talent. Their voices... More

This is a great venue located in the heart of Granville island which offers an assortment of great plays!! There is a restaurant/bar located there also so a good place to grab a drink or after play dinner. Your ticket offers 15% off your meal in the day of

This particular performance was extremely well performed. Several of the actors played multiple roles, hence a lot of costume changes. There was a lot of comedy, both farcical and subtle. Drinks for intermission are a little pricey.

Wine tasting tables with a few food and wine pairings. $80 for early bird $90 regular price 7-9 pm. Food; Had to line up for 4-10 minutes for each food and wine pairing. Very small samples. Wine; Wide assortment of Wineries to taste, much more efficient than driving around or touring. Very very busy, so it feel like the guests... More

This performance was playing at the Stanley Theatre and as it was a rainy day we decided to take in a matinee. The play was very well done. The actors did a superb job, there was lots of laughs, and the scene changes were very innovative. We felt well entertained (although it was a little costly for a matinee performance).

I have been to more shows here than I can count so obviously it is of good value. The Arts Club Theatre productions are very well done with the limited space/budget they may have. The talent is commendable and their dedication to theatre comes through in every performance. One of the best entertainment venues in Vancouver.

I have attended many performances by the Arts Club Theatre Company over the years. I have never been disappointed by any of their shows. I had just recently attended their performance of “Rock of Ages” at the Granville Island Stage. It wasn’t quite as good as the version that I had seen on Broadway in New York but it still... More

I've had seasons tickets to the Stanley Industrial Alliance Theatre for the last several years and I've been consistently impressed by this company. They tackle the whole spectrum of theatre from experimental and deeply upsetting dramas to light and fun musicals. It is always wonderful to see Vancouver's local talent shine. I also attended their California Wine Festival fundraiser this... More

Staying in Granville Island & Fairview

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
