Questions About Membership? 


Membership Overview

The Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance (GVPTA) is the professional association for live theatre in Metro Vancouver. GVPTA is the only arts service organization specifically focused on professional theatre in British Columbia.

Formed in 1976, and incorporated in 1987, we play a unique role in the community: we offer programs and services to support the development of theatre practitioners as artists and administrators, and ultimately to help strengthen the local theatre industry.

In addition to providing benefits specifically for our membership, we support our members and the broader theatre community through the provision of education, publicity, and opportunities for convening.

Our membership includes over 70 theatre companies and 120 theatre artists and arts workers; as well as educational institutions and organizations that support the theatre industry.

As a member you’ll be plugged into the middle of this artistic community where you can connect with the region’s most committed theatre artists, gain inspiration, form connections, and be a part of this thriving community. 

Who is eligible to become a member?

Any theatre-related organization, or any individual who participates in, or supports live theatre is welcome to become a member, including: performing artists, production companies and collectives, venues, producers, designers, directors, educators and educational institutions, publicists, students, and administrators.
