Where Ideas Play

Presentation House Theatre (PHT) is located in the heart of North Vancouver, on the stunning north shore of the Vancouver BC area. Under the artistic leadership of Kim Selody, the company produces and presents professional theatre for children, youth and adults, using live performance experiences to create and build community locally, and on tour nationally and internationally. Our home is a 150 seat, flexible space theatre; the Anne MacDonald Studio, a heritage church repurposed as a dance/theatre/music studio; and additional studio spaces we offer for residencies and rehearsal space to local artists. A typical season at PHT includes mainstage productions, presentations, touring, a small series of professional music and dance, and the hosting of several local arts groups. We average 60+ events throughout the year. In addition, we proudly act as an incubator space for the development of new works.

PHT has two key relationships in the City of North Vancouver: North Vancouver Recreation and Cultural Commission, which provides operating grants to support our annual operations; and the City of North Vancouver in relationship to our lease in managing the Presentation House facilities.
