Presentation House Re-Launch Party

Oct 6, 2005

By Catherine Barr


North Vancouver's Presentation House has always been known for its fabulously intimate setting and professional productions. But last week, the small playhouse made a major announcement about some big plans for the future. For the first time in 10 years, Presentation House will take artistic charge of its own programming and aim for the stars. "In doing so, Presentation House is climbing out on an artistic and financial limb to mount its own season of professional theatre productions -- a first on Vancouver's North Shore," states publicist Ken Mazer. To celebrate, a special "Manhattan" reception was held at the Delta Vancouver Suites last Thursday.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

Local legend and actor Anne Marsh (left) will play the role of the maid to fellow actor Jane Noble's character, Judith Bliss, in the Noel Coward play "Hayfever". Look for this terribly talented twosome on stage this coming January.
Toby Berner (left) will appear on stage this October in the play "Life Skills" while Niki Brown will wait for the new year and her debut in "Hayfever".
Local playwright David King is a true delight to talk to. His "Life Skills" is a comedy said to be for anyone who has ever been in a "challenging relationship". It will open on October 20.
