ALERT to Bard patrons – BRIDGE CLOSURE: On Saturday, September 23, the Burrard Bridge will be completely closed to traffic all day, including the periods before and after our performances. Please plan to use an alternate route, and allow some additional time to get to Vanier Park for our 2pm or 7:30pm start times.

We’re eager to support the artists and artisans of our theatre community by providing opportunities for professional development to both emerging and established theatre practitioners.
