Stage Door Theatre presents “The 4th Element”

MAY 17 @ 7:30 PM9:00 PM

 In a world desperate for water, a band of ‘Water Miners’ explore a post-apocalyptic underworld in search of pipes that may contain the prized element. In a desperate struggle to stay alive, the band of brothers stumble upon the tragic reason for the earth’s drought problem. Upon receiving sage advice from an Old Mage, the group goes in search of the 4th Element in order to restore balance in the world and save their dwindling society. But can the Water Miners adopt the sage advice? Can they find balance within themselves and work together in order to save their dying planet?

Stage Door Theatre Troupe presents “The 4th Element”. A play about the human spirit, overcoming individual selfishness, and the awareness of how we together can harm or heal the world in which we live.

Tickets: $15 at the door.

Vancouver Inspiration Pass

Welcome to the Vancouver Inspiration Pass.

Opening the door to exciting experiences and fun things to see and do across the city, the Vancouver Inspiration Pass is a free cultural and recreational pass program that allows individuals, families and teens to explore their city like never before.

Free for Vancouver residents aged 14 years and older, the pass is valid for a period of two weeks, and can be borrowed through any Vancouver Public Library location.

There are 140 passes available for loan every two weeks – 20 are available through the Central Library downtown and six passes available at each of VPL branches across the city.

Response to the pass has been tremendous. We are working hard to ensure that eligible patrons receive passes as quickly as possible, so that as many resident as possible can enjoy this outstanding program. Given the strong interest and limited number of passes, however, some patrons will experience a wait before a pass becomes available. We appreciate your patience.

We are continually evaluating the program and working on improvements, and our patrons are an important part of that process. We’d like to hear what you think – please share your comments and suggestions at info@vpl.ca
