Welcome to Presentation House Theatre | Where Ideas Play

WEB PHT Spring brochure 6

Presentation House Theatre (PHT) is the north shore’s professional theatre company, where ideas play and grow into quality performing arts for all ages. For nearly 40 years, friends and strangers have gathered here to enjoy innovative programming and quality professional shows in this wonderfully intimate space.

We thank the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, for letting us do our work on their land.

Our current season touches on big issues with humour, pathos, imagination, marionettes and, yes, even juggling! It presents a world of ideas, from the land of Wild Things to the heart of Mexico City, ancient traditions to new immigrants, conformity to breaking free with themes that are universal, and deeply personal.

“The mind at play is ageless, boundless,” says Kim Selody, Artistic Director. “This is a place for generations and cultures to come together and play with ideas through theatre, music and dance.  It’s a great way to make friends and reach across generations, beliefs and diverse cultures. To understand.”

And audiences can enjoy it all from brand new, comfortable seats installed in the summer of 2017 for a comfy new future in a well-loved historical space.

“You are welcome anytime,” says Selody, “to come watch, listen, and play.”
