Today, Presentation House Cultural Society operates Presentation House Theatre, and oversees the maintenance of the Presentation House Arts Centre for all facility users and tenants including Presentation House Gallery and the North Vancouver Museum.
Welcome to Presentation House Theatre, your neighbourhood professional performing arts centre with all kinds of shows for all kinds of people. We are the place where children, youth and adults from different communities come together for a shared experience in professional theatre and performing arts. We create this shared experience by building bridges between professional artists with over 10,000 hours of experience and the community, eager to appreciate quality artistry; between generations with programming that brings in very young children, as well as adults and seniors; and between the diverse cultures of the North Shore with programming that reflects our diversity in taste and experience. So come visit us to Laugh, Cry, Think, and Learn.
-Kim Selody, Artistic Director
