about Metro Theatre

Metro Theatre’s – How We Got Here

The Metropolitan Co-operative Theatre Society was founded in 1962 helped by a $5,000 grant from the City Council to turn a derelict movie house that had been running since the 1930’s, into a live theatre.

Eleven companies, among which White Rock Players, Vagabond Players, North Vancouver Community Players and West Vancouver Theatre Guild, which still exist today, combined to present Metro’s inaugural season. It was not until September of 1964, however, that they were able to move into the present location where an open house and black tie gala heralded the opening night of White Rock Players’ production of Dark of the Moon. It was reviewed by James Barber, the Sun theatre critic, as “a good play, well executed and one that sets a standard for Metro that is worthy of their investment.”

In its first few years, Metro seemed set for success. Although, the co-operative idea did not survive, Metro became an independent production company. During the early seventies, there was an exponential growth in Vancouver`s professional theatre. As long as Metro had its grant, they were able to compete reasonably well, using a combination of professional and non-professional performers, directors and designers. Actors such as Robert Clothier and Anthony Holland lent their experience while young performers like Brent Carver and Ruth Nichol honed their craft. Similarly, Metro was a training ground for young technicians, like Rob Moser, employed full time in the movie industry and Les Erskine, formerly of the movie business, now our very own GM and TD.
