STAGE DOOR THEATRE TROUPE’S LATEST SWASHBUCKLING PRODUCTION
Vancouver, BC – This spring, a tale of romance, action, and adventure called Pirates and Lovers sets sail at Stage Door Theater located on the lower level of Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street, Vancouver). Hosted by the Stage Door Theatre Troupe and supported by posAbilities, the play will run on April 24, 25, 26 and May 1, 2, and 3 at 7:30 pm. If the pirate’s life is the life for you, $15 tickets are available at the door.
The Stage Door Theatre Troupe is an award-winning group known for its improv style, plays, and imaginative actors. All actors live with developmental disabilities and they’re excited to bring the community together through their engaging, exciting, and thought-provoking performances. No matter the theme or content of a play, they use their unique skills and expertise to create something never before seen.
In Pirates and Lovers, all havoc breaks loose when a ruthless greedy judge denies his daughter and her lover of their togetherness. Instead of granting her freedom, he forces her to marry another man. This leads us to question, what will happen next? So avast ye mateys and come see excitement levels rise just like the sea while actors get into character and transform into swashbuckling buccaneers. Director, Don House, shares: “This year’s show has been challenging as we haven’t had this many actors on stage before. Giving 16 performers (a mix of new timers and veterans) a chance to shine isn’t easy. But I think we have a fun show this year, with some very funny moments.”
