TUTS Announces 2019 Season with Mamma Mia! and Disney’s Newsies

Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park05 Jul '19 to 17 Aug '19 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Audiences will bathe in the warmth of a Greek island and witness a fight for what’s right this summer, when Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) presents Mamma Mia! and Disney’s Newsies, running alternate evenings July 5–August 17, 2019, at Stanley Park’s glorious Malkin Bowl. A beloved Vancouver tradition since 1940, TUTS’ two-show subscription packs areon sale TODAY through May 4 (early bird single tickets on sale May 15).

    TUTS’ 2019 season offers two stunning musicals: one that tells the lighthearted tale of a mother and a daughter who embark on a hilarious quest to discover the identity of her true father; the other tells the stirring account of a ragged band of newspaper boys and street urchins who strike for fair pay and humane working conditions in 1899 New York City.

    Set on a Greek island paradise where the sun always shines, box office record-breaking Mamma Mia! brims with non-stop laughs, explosive dance, and the magic of ABBA’s hit songs: ‘Dancing Queen,’ ‘Take a Chance on Me,’ ‘Super Trouper,’ ‘SOS,’ and many more. More than 60 million people the world over have fallen in love with the characters, story, and music that makes Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show. Returning to the director’s chair is TUTS Board Vice President and Production Committee Chair Shel Piercy, who will transport audiences to a sunny world of romantic hijinks and musical memories. Fans will fondly remember his previous directorial extravaganzas: Beauty and the Beast and Mary Poppins.

    A soaring spectacle of powerful song and high-kicking dance, Disney’s Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message for the whole family. At the turn of the 20th century, New York City had its papers delivered by an army of ragged orphans and runaways called ‘newsies.’ When newspaper owners raise distribution prices at the newsies’ expense, this band of misfits unites to strike against the unfair conditions. Filled with inspiring songs such as ‘King of New York,’ ‘Santa Fe,’ and ‘Carrying the Banner,’ this Disney film turned Tony Award-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to seize the day! The talented Julie Tomaino will make her TUTS directorial debut with this incredibly moving show. Long-time followers will recall her stellar choreographic direction in the previous TUTS productions of Hairspray and Shrek: The Musical.

    TUTS will once again offer a two-show subscription pack — allowing audiences to secure their seats to both productions for one great price. On sale now through May 4, subscriptions are $80 for adults, $50 for children and youths, and include Premium tickets to both productions, souvenir programmes, and exchange insurance for both nights.

    Subscriptions are available by visiting or by calling 604-631-2877 until May 4. Early bird single tickets go on sale May 15.
