About PHT

At Presentation House Theatre (PHT), we understand that THE PERFORMING ARTS ARE a powerful tool in creating community by building bridges and connections between people. Buildings are ‘enablers’ of activity, allowing people to create, gather, and dream, and so our MISSION is threefold:

  • To facilitate meaningful connections between people through the development, production and presentation of professional theatre for children, youth and adults regionally, nationally and internationally.
  • To create community and bridge generations and cultures on Vancouver’s north shore through shared professional theatre experiences.
  • To operate and manage the facility of Presentation House, a North Shore Performing Arts Cultural Centre.

Our values

DIVERSE INCLUSION: We believe theatre is for everyone, across cultures, generations, abilities, and incomes. We strive to include broad and intersecting identities in our community and a special focus on meaningful, decolonized partnership with those Indigenous to this land.

ACCESSIBILITY: We seek to remove all barriers that may prevent someone from participating in our community, be they physical, financial, or otherwise.

HUMANITY: We see live performing arts as an inherently human art form, gathering people together for a shared experience. Because of this, we always seek a human-first approach to our work, approaching our partners, audience, artists, and staff as people, not means to an end.

HEALTH AND SAFETY: We believe that art, and theatre in particular, are vital to healthy hearts, minds, and communities. This means that we take care of one another physically, mentally, and emotionally and approach difficult subject matter with care.

ACCOUNTABILITY: We know we will make mistakes, and when we do, we own up to them and make them right. We expect the same from the partners we work with.
