Arts Umbrella's Senior Theatre Troupe brings George Orwell’s allegory to communism to life in this stage adaptation by Nelson Bond.

Showcasing some of Vancouver’s most talented young artists, the annual festival boasts a
curated selection of theatre and musical theatre classics. The festival features performances by students in the pre-professional program: Arts Umbrella’s Junior and Senior Musical Theatre Troupes, and its Junior and Senior Theatre Troupes.

This year audiences will be treated to a selection of family-friendly programming, including the fairy-tale classic Peter Pan, the whimsical musical rendition of James and the Giant Peach, the mythical Animal Farm, and the magical tale of Into the Woods.

“I’m incredibly proud of the exceptional talent and work of these bright young minds at Arts Umbrella,” says Paul Moniz de Sá, Artistic Director of Theatre & Music at Arts Umbrella. “As we continue to develop our programs, the students and their passion never cease to amaze me. Our instructional team works to not only create an environment that nurtures creativity, but one that acts as a springboard for our students’ next steps in
life—in the theatre and in the world.”

Arts Umbrella pre-professional theatre programs offers students the training and tools needed to pursue a career in theatre. Renowned local industry instructors guide students in a process unique to Arts Umbrella. At Expressions Festival, emerging artists perform on a professional stage and learn about all of the facets and operations behind bringing works to life.
