One of Vancouver’s largest and longest running theatre companies is closing its curtains for the 2020 season.  

Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) announced on March 26 the cancellation of its productions of Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Hello, Dolly! which were slated to run July 4 to Aug. 29. at Stanley Park’s Malkin Bowl.

“Cancellation of the 2020 productions is one way we can prioritize the safety of our audiences, artists, crews, staff and volunteers, while supporting our city and those working on the front lines to help flatten the curve,” said the TUTS board in a press release. “These measures will also ensure that TUTS remains strong and healthy as an organization, returning to Malkin Bowl in 2021 with the presentation of fantastic shows that you — our beloved audience — anticipate year-over-year.”
