Gateway Theatre

LARGE REGIONAL THEATRE WITH A COMMUNITY-BUILDING CORE

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR JOVANNI SY

Gateway Theatre’s 2016–17 season offers audiences the opportunity to interact with new material from some of Canada’s most exciting, inventive theatre companies and artists.

The season opens with the Canadian premiere of Lauren Yee’s madcap adventure across a cultural and generational divide, King of the Yees, directed by Boca del Lupo’s Sherry Yoon. Then, from the Pi Theatre comes the world premiere of Peter Dickinson’s strikingly imagined metaphysical drama, Long Division, which examines the mathematics of human connection.

Gateway’s beloved holiday musical is Meredith Willson’s rousing, Tony Award-winning classic, The Music Man, directed by Barbara Tomasic, with musical direction by Christopher King.

The new year opens with Ruby Slippers Theatre’s acclaimed production of You Will Remember Me, a wistful and wise family drama by Québécois playwright François Archambault, translated by Bobby Theodore. Then, in March, ITSAZOO and Savage Society make a provocative and comedic foray into the firestorm of debate surrounding the Trans Mountain and Northern Gateway pipelines with the world premiere of, The Pipeline Project.

Annabel Soutar’s rollicking road trip, The Watershed, concludes Gateway Season in April. By innovatively dramatizing an eclectic and insightful set of interviews. The Watershed incisively probes the forces that are shaping the future of our dwindling natural resources. Join us and discover more than entertainment.

See you at Gateway!
