The GVPTA creates opportunities for professional and organizational development:
Annual Conference - Our annual conference that focuses on industry trends, issues and coming together to create a stronger community.
Unified General Auditions - The Unified General Auditions (UGAs) is an annual event where theatre directors collectively audition approximately 100 local theatre actors.
Initiatives- We take on various initiatives that would benefit our members and sectors, such as the Theatre Engagement Project.
The Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance (GVPTA) strives to strengthen the local theatre industry. We do this through providing services, promotion of member news and community events, opportunities to connect and network, and our annual theatre conference. Together with our members we are raising the profile of local theatre and building community.
At GVPTA, we acknowledge that our organization is located on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
