We started Theatre Wire because we saw a need to create connections between all the smaller theatre companies in Vancouver. Our city is a creative powerhouse with brilliant, independent theatre openings practically every week, but it can be difficult to keep tabs on all these companies and their productions. Our vision for Theatre Wire is to be a one-stop shop for independent theatre happenings.
In addition to selling tickets and subscriptions to shows, we also want to become your source for local theatre news, and create a sense of community by producing articles about local performing arts history. We’ve also produced a video series with comedian Sara Bynoe (Say Wha?: Reading of Deliciously Rotten Writing) interviewing Vancouver’s theatre personalities, including the Georgia Straight’s theatre critic, Colin Thomas and 2015 Jessie Award winner Cameron Mackenzie (Ray Michal Prize for Most Promising New Director).
Funding for Theatre Wire has been provided by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Vancouver Foundation, and the British Columbia Arts Council.
