PR-team adventures

One week ago I went to one of the many shows of Theatre Under The Stars. It was really great to experience a play outdoors.

Theatre Under The Stars is an organization that organizes theatre plays in Stanley Park every year. As it is a non-profit organization, it depends a lot on volunteers. At the moment they are playing the shows The Drowsy Chaperone and Mary Poppins.

Tuesday was the opening night of the show Mary Poppins and Marie arranged a ticket for me. When we first got in, we got the chance to see the costumes from the last shows. After that it was finally time to find our seats. I could not believe how big Theatre Under The Stars is! There is place for more than 1000 people. On the night of the opening there were also more than 1000 people present at the show. Marie and I got placed on a chair at the aisle with a great view over the stage, but there were also people sitting on the grass. Another great thing about the show is that you can bring your own food and drinks to the show, except for alcohol.

I didn’t know that you could take food and drinks with you, so I was keeping myself satisfied with the beverages offered by the organization. I did not really know what to expect, but I was sure that it would turn out to be great, as so many people bought tickets for the show. If you have seen Mary Poppins before, you may already have ideas about what will happen during the show. I never watched Mary Poppins, which made everything a surprise to me. The actors were singing a lot and I was amazed by their voices. It was quite unbelievable that only the leads are paid actors. Besides that they also blew me away with the special effects. There were fireworks, people were flying and much more. Honestly, the show was way better than I expected and I am really glad that I got the chance to go.

I hope you all had a great week so far! See you tonight at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

The weekend is here and the weather is promising to be great again! So here are some ideas to make this an awesome weekend.

Our weekly event already happened last night at the free evening of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. If you missed it or want to go again, the festival will be the entire weekend. The festival is one of the biggest music festivals here and definitely worth checking out. It is located at Jericho Park and you can get tickets online or at the festival site.

Another option is the Greek Summerfest. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday you can enjoy Greek food, culture and music at St. Nicholas and Dimitrios Greek Orthodox Church.

If you were still planning on going to White Rock, a good option is to go on Saturday night when the TD Concerts at the Pier is happening. This free concert features R&B All Stars. Or go to the Red Truck Concert Series. Red Truck is a beer company and they organize a few concerts this summer. It starts at 4 PM on Saturday and it will cost you $35.

If you’re more into theatre you could check out Theatre Under The Stars in Stanley Park. This Sunday they are performing The Drowsy Chaperone. Just remember to buy your tickets beforehand.

Or just take the weekend to enjoy the weather on one of the many beaches or try out a hike!

I hope you have an amazing weekend we’ll see you on the next PuB NiGHT!
