Gateway Theatre enriches the quality of life in Richmond and surrounding communities by creating outstanding professional theatre and serving as a dynamic hub for the performing arts. Incorporated in 1982, Gateway is a vital member of the professional theatre scene in the Lower Mainland. Gateway’s professional activity includes a six-show English-language Signature Series, the Pacific Festival of contemporary theatre in Chinese, and a play development program. We also provide theatre education and performance training classes for youth ages 6-18 via Gateway Theatre Academy. As a venue, Gateway Theatre also provides a much-needed rental space for professional and community producers.
