It's a HIT! Must close April 5: Critical and public acclaim for  our final production of the season, UBU Roi, says this one of our most outstanding works in recent memory. Congratulations to MFA Director (and Monster Theatre AD) Ryan Gladstone who has given Alfred Jarry's landmark absurdist play a delightfully 'twisted' modern twist - as a play within a play put on by "Alfred Jarry's School for Wayward Girls". Only 3 more performances - book your tickets now. Wear your laughing pants and your thinking hat.  Video teaser at the link: "What is Ubu Roi?" - The Jarry School for Wayward Girls +The University of British Columbia

Our  BFA Alumnus Torrence Coobs takes a lead role in TV series premiere of REIGN tomorrow night!

Reign will take viewers back into history to tell the fictional story of Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane). The story begins with her arrival back at the French Court after surviving an assassination attempt. 

She's been engaged to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo) since she was a young child, but whether they will marry or not is questionable. On her arrival, it's immediately apparent that Francis' half-brother, Bash (played by BFA acting alumnus Torrance Coombs), is smitten by the Queen. Reign premieres on Thursday, October 17 at 9 pm ET on the CW Television Network. See Coombs in a preview and interview about his role in the new series:

The future of the theatre on the stage today
Introduction
Where the future of the theatre in Canada can be seen on the stage today.

Theatre at UBC is recognised as one of Canada's foremost academic Theatre programs. Located on the spectacular UBC campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, we offer a comprehensive range of degrees in the study of Theatre and the opportunity to learn in an interdisciplinary environment combining Film, Creative Writing, Music, Digital Media and other university disciplines. 

Our approach encourages students to bring leading edge theory and research together with practice in the staging of innovative new works, national premieres and classics from the world stage.

Our faculty of accomplished artists and scholars in residence ably support students' imaginative, technical, and intellectual development equally as they prepare to embark on a life in theatre and related arts.
