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, Pacific Theatre moved into its current home at Hemlock & 12th on October 14, 1994. Right in the heart of Vancouver, the new space features Vancouver’s only 128-seat alley-style theatre and is located in the historical Chalmers Heritage Building (now owned by Holy Trinity Anglican Church).

In addition to its mainstage resident theatre the company toured for five years with The Dragon’s Project, theatre primarily for young audiences. Over 650 school and community performances reached an audience of 160,000 students and adults in British Columbia with plays encouraging students to avoid substance abuse and challenging the addicted to seek recovery. Pacific Theatre’s 2003 school matinee production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was seen by over 10,000 students, including more than 1,000 from Vancouver’s Sunrise Area schools whose tickets and personal copies of the novel were paid for through an innovative partnership with the Vancouver Public Schools Foundation and CIBC Wood Gundy Caring for Kids Fund.
