THEATRE  GUIDE

Your official guide to what's on stage around Metro Vancouver

Theatre Guide Listings

GVPTA's Theatre Guide is the top result when searching the web for theatre in Metro Vancouver. Make sure your production gets noticed; list early, and list often! 


Post your listing as far in advance of the show as you wish; postings stay up until the show is over.  

What's Included?

A listing is equal to one entry on the Theatre Guide and may be a single show, or a festival with a single date range. Each listing includes an image, performance description, venue, opening and closing dates, a website link, and tags such as Event type and Audience. 

As this is a theatre listings guide, submissions of concert listings or dance performances without any theatre component are not accepted, however hybrid performances are accepted. Theatre company fundraisers or special events will be considered. Listings for courses or instructional workshops are not accepted, however free online professional development opportunities may qualify for listing on our Digital Learning board. 


In addition to appearing on the Theatre Guide, theatre performance listings appear in up to two  issues of the twice-monthly GVPTA Industry News newsletter, issued to approximately 1,500 subscribers, and are shared via GVPTA's Twitter feed. Note that non-theatre performances do not appear in the newsletter.


Interested in additional exposure? Featured listings, available to promote theatre performances for an added fee, are provided additional prominence on our Instagram and Facebook streams, as well as in our newsletter.o

Submission Deadlines: 
Upcoming Theatre Guide listings are promoted in GVPTA's bi-weekly newsletter. The newsletter promotes shows running over the upcoming two-week period and continues to promote them through the show's run (e.g. If your performance runs November 19 through December 10, it appears in newsletters issued Nov. 10, 24, and Dec. 8). The newsletter is issued every other week on Wednesday mornings. 

If your show starts within the next two weeks and you'd like it to be promoted in the upcoming newsletter, the deadline to submit your listing is 12:00pm on the Tuesday prior to the newsletter issue date.
