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!

What to do on the weekend

Only a few hours to go and then it’s weekend again! There is a lot to do this weekend, so make the best out of it by using this as an inspiration for your plans.

This is the weekend of the festivals and street parties and some are for free. If you would like to experience one of the many festivals in Vancouver, then you can join INTERNeX at the Khatsahlano street party on Saturday. This is a huge one-day street party held in Kitsilano. During this street party you can listen to one of the many artists on one of the stages. Besides that there are also a lot of food trucks, an artisan market and many demonstrations and activities at this street party.

If you would rather practice your salsa moves, then you should definitely go to Carnaval del Sol on Saturday or Sunday. This festival is part of the Latin festival and features live music with about 400 artists and dance performances. Besides that you could enjoy the music at the Summer Sunday Concert Series in Burnaby. Are you more interested in classic music? Vancouver has that covered for you too! On Sunday you can go to Symphony in the Park where you can listen to a free concert of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

If you are more interested in theatre rather than music, then you could go to Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival or Theatre Under the Stars. During Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival you can watch one of the Shakespeare plays in Vanier Park. If you would rather see a more modern theatre play, then you can go to Theatre Under the Stars this weekend. This weekend they are playing Marry Poppins. These performances are a bit more pricy, but are definitely worth it.

It is supposed to be good weather on Saturday and Sunday, so you could also try out the Grouse Grind, which opened 2 weeks ago. If you are planning on doing the Grouse Grind, do not forget to bring enough water with you, as it is a rough hike.

Whatever you are planning on doing this weekend, have a lot of fun! See you at the Khatsalano street party or at next week’s PuB NiGHT!

You should not miss the final, enjoy an exciting match and cheer for your favorite team. There are many spots where you can watch the final, it will be a great end of the world cup, even when you watch it in a city with so many nationalities like Vancouver.
