Dates of existence



Pacific Theatre was established in 1984 by a group of actors who wanted to establish a non-propagandist professional theatre where they would be free to explore work having particular meaning to them as Christians. On October 14, 1994, the theatre company moved into a purpose-built 128-seat alley-style theatre in the historic Chalmers Heritage Building.

Pacific Theatre has collaborated with a variety of artists and other companies in Vancouver, including guest productions, co-productions, and presentations in its seasons as collaborators. Companies Pacific Theatre has worked with or mentored include Glass City Theatre, One2Theatre, Midnight Theatre Collective, Touchstone Theatre, Pound of Flesh Theatre, Ruby Slippers, Dark Glass Theatre, Cave Canem Productions, Ensemble Theatre and Reid Farrington (New York).
