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

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

Show Term

Our students perform full musical theatre productions with their classmates every June. Costumes, sets and props give students the thrill of performing live in a professional theatre for their family and friends*.

Major Performances and Events

Every year, Lights Up Schools from across the Lower Mainland join forces for regional performances at some of Vancouver’s most prestigious performance venues, including The Queen Elizabeth Theatre, The Playhouse and the Orpheum. Performing in front of audiences of up to 1,500 people in these wonderful theatres is an experience students will never forget

The Summer Show Intensive

The summer show camp is a special “audition only” opportunity for full time Lights Up students. Performers spend 2 weeks in 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 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. Proceeds of major performances and events are donated to the children’s charity Kidsafe.
