Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) is an annual outdoor theatre event that brings together talented performers, captivating productions, and the enchanting backdrop of Stanley Park. We have been bringing the family to TUTS since the oldest was young. It has been a family tradition of ours to attend every summer. This year, the “audiences are invited to witness the magic that comes from taking risks, celebrating differences, and, above all, accepting others for who they truly are in this summer’s endearing and exhilarating season of Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS), which presents The Prom and Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical, on stage July 6–August 26, 2023, at Stanley Park’s scenic Malkin Bowl.”
When attending Theatre Under the Stars, it’s important to come prepared to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
This year, we watched Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical and it was wonderful. Coincidentally, we are reading this book, so this musical was perfect timing. “A whimsical musical that showcases all of the best elements of Roald Dahl’s iconic storytelling – bravery, rebelliousness, and a sharp wit that has gripped audiences for the past 60-plus years – Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is chock full of humour, heart, and hope. Set in a small English village, a brilliant little girl with a lively imagination is ignored at home by her parents and bullied at school by her headmistress. Through the strength of her imaginative storytelling ability, she uses her surprising magical powers to ‘fight for the right to be a little bit naughty.’ With toe-tapping songs and outstanding dance numbers featuring a talented cast of young people, this family-friendly stage phenomenon is the perfect TUTS introduction for young audiences. Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical has also received the Netflix treatment, released as a feature film on the streaming platform in 2022, starring Emma Thompson as Miss Trunchbull.” We really enjoyed it and the young girl playing Matilda couldn’t be more perfect. This is a fun musical for all families.
Another musical featured in Theatre Under the Stars is, The Prom. “Set at a small-town high school, The Prom balances unabashed hopefulness, heartfelt vulnerability, and hard-hitting hilarity. The show opens with four, down-on-their-luck Broadway actors looking to make a change. Desperate to improve their public image, they search for a high-profile charitable cause to support. They find Emma – a high school senior whose prom has just been cancelled because she planned to attend with her girlfriend. But their scheming quickly goes sideways, and they ultimately come to learn what everyone is searching for – a place to belong. A relatively new musical, which debuted on Broadway in November 2018, The Prom was most recently produced as a Netflix movie starring Meryl Streep, in 2020.”
