Heads Up! Parking Advisory!

Please note that the downtown core will be busier than usual on Tuesday, October 19, due to a concert at Rogers Arena. Don't let the crowds of Justin Bieber fans make you late for Lillian Alling! Give yourself plenty of time to get downtown and park.

Remember: doors open at 6:15 pm, free preview talks in the theatre begin at 6:30 pm, and all productions start at 7:30 pm sharp. Latecomers will not be seated until an appropriate break in the performance.

City of Vancouver parking meters are now in effect until 10:00 pm. Our performances rarely end by 10:00 pm. Therefore you risk getting a ticket and being towed! You can 'top up' your parking meter by phone - click here to learn about Pay-by-Phone parking.
