Students work hard throughout the year and are excited to show off their skills to friends and family. Lights Up offers various performance opportunities – from smaller, in-house presentations to full-scale productions in some of the Lower Mainland’s top theatres.

In-House Presentations – Fall Term

A chance for everyone to shine! These intimate presentations occur at our class venues and ease students into performing for an audience in a comfortable and familiar environment. An opportunity to meet the challenge of hitting the stage with confidence and energy.

March Showcase – Winter Term

Every year, Lights Up Spotlight and Company schools from across our network join forces for a regional performance at a large performing arts venue in the Lower Mainland. This performance brings together schools from across our community of locations and is wonderful way to celebrate each unique school. Spending time back stage with students from all over the lower mainland and performing in front of audiences of up to 1,500 people is an experience students will never forget.*

Show Term – Spring Term

Every June, all our students from ages 3-16 perform full musical theatre productions with their classmates. These musicals are created by us to ensure all students have their moment to shine. Costumes, sets and props give students the thrill of performing live in a professional theatre for their family and friends.*

Afterschool Performances

At the end of each term, students participating in an after school program have the opportunity to perform a “written for them” musical for their family, friends, and school community. These productions take place in the school and focus on celebrating the skills learnt throughout the term; students are provided with basic costume pieces, but many go all out at home, creating amazing costumes to wear on stage!  We love seeing students share their new found confidence with their school communities!

The Summer Show Intensive

The summer show camp is a special “audition only” opportunity for full time Lights Up students. Performers spend 2 weeks of the summer immersed in the production of a full book musical, culminating in a run of shows at a local theatre. Students are fully involved in every aspect of producing a musical, from auditions and rehearsals, to set building, costume design and more. An opportunity not to be missed!

* Theatre performances usually are ticketed, however prices are kept minimal to cover additional theatre costs only.
