The Virtual Stage presents the fifth annual production of its acclaimed Zombie Syndrome interactive theatre-adventure series, Dead In The Water, October 4 to 31, 2016 on Granville Island. Audience members will be challenged to travel by land and sea, brave the elements, and defeat a strange new breed of mutant zombie-vampires. This chilling new production will also feature the integration of Apple’s sophisticated iBeacon technology for the first time in Canadian professional theatre. The location-based iBeacons will boost interactivity by triggering clues on audience members’ smartphones, helping teams of up to 18 people as they race against time in their battle with blood-thirsty forces of darkness.
Tickets from $12.50. For more info and tickets, visit: zombiesyndrome.com

Vancouver in the Seventies zooms in on key themes and moments from Vancouver’s coming of age: a time of protest, political upheaval, economic prosperity, and cultural blossoming. The exhibition will feature photographic gems from the Vancouver Sun collection and will include complementary objects from the Museum’s collection. The exhibition is based on the book Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade that Changed the City (Greystone Books, to be released in October 2016), authored by retired Vancouver Sun research librarian Kate Bird and columnist Shelley Fralic. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Museum of Vancouver will offer activities that bring Vancouverites together to reflect on the 1970s through the lenses of activism, arts, and business—and think about the future of the city.
ITSAZOO presents the bone-chilling site-specific horror event Hidden, October 22 – November 13, 2016 at UBC Botanical Garden. Blurring the lines between performance and reality, ITSAZOO will guide audiences of 13 people, armed only with flashlights, on the Lost Lovers Murder Tour – a frighteningly accurate re-enactment of the infamous and unsolved murders that occurred exactly 20-years ago, deep within the forest. Inspired by classic horror movies, Playwright and Co-Director Sebastien Archibald and award-winning Director Chelsea Haberlin will take audiences on an experiential journey – part historical murder tour, part outdoor adventure, and part meta-theatrical thriller.

The trial is over. The verdict is not. 12 jurors gather in a room to decide on the fate of a young boy. Coercion and animosity ensue. Decisions are made. Opinions are swayed. Will the boy live…or die? The verdict is in their hands. Using facts, cultural assumptions, logic and passion, these jurors struggle with their pasts and the future of a young boy. 12 ANGRY JURORS is a deep investigation into how we, as a society, decide upon our moral centre.
Standing Room Only Theatre is proud to partner with a local charity for this production: KidStart Mentoring. This organization works with kids aged six and up who face challenges at home, in school or in the community.
