Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival: Much Ado About Nothing

Thu, Jun 1

1695 Whyte Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 3J9, Canada map

It’s Italy in 1959, and a group of actors and filmmakers are celebrating the wrap of their latest movie. Movie stars Beatrice and Benedick are drawn to each other but refuse to admit it, and Hero and Claudio’s marriage plans are about to be sabotaged by a journalist’s mean-spirited scheme. Cue the paparazzi, then a faked death, and la dolce vita threatens to become not so sweet; but with a script full of surprises, love can still triumph before the credits roll.

Girl in the Goldfish Bowl

Wed, Jun 7 - Thu, Jun 15

1551 W 7th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1S1, Canada map

Arts Umbrella Theatre Conservatory presents Girl in the Goldfish Bowl, Morris Panych’s 2002 play about a girl on the brink of adulthood. Set on the West Coast during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, 11-year-old Iris is mourning the spirit of her dearly departed goldfish when a stranger walks into her life. The man, Mr. Lawrence, is perhaps the goldfish reincarnate, and given to rhetorical questions of seemingly deep philosophical import. The girl’s parents, Sylvia and Owen, struggle in their relationship, and another house guest, Miss Rose, only adds to the tension.
A poignant, funny, and contemplative play, Girl in the Goldfish Bowl grapples with issues like family, commitment, obligation, and secrets. Jessie award-winning director Barbara Tomasic brings the 1960s to life at Studio 16.

Chocolate History & Tasting Workshop

Mon, Jun 12

319 W Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H6, Canada map

Evolution of chocolate: from bean to drink to bar
Chocolate has existed for over 5500 years, but has only existed as we know chocolate today for roughly 170 years. This intensive two hour workshop will enhance your chocolate comprehension. We will taste and learn the history of chocolate, the process of making chocolate today, and develop tools for tasting fine chocolate.
You will gain practical skills that will allow you to become your own judge of chocolate, which includes building your chocolate vocabulary, tools for tasting chocolate, understanding labels and marketing, and how to communicate what you’re sensing in more than just taste. With these skills, you will be more confident in appreciating chocolate based on what you know and sense, and not what someone else to tells you.
By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:
1. Understand how to properly taste fine chocolate
2. Make sense of the labelling and marketing of chocolate
3. Critic and place any chocolate based on informed judgement
Geoseph’s background in biology, art history, and gastronomy join forces to help you understand chocolate like never before. With a decade in the industry as both a chocolatier and chocolate sommelier, his confidence and enthusiasm brings forth a truly captivating workshop.
This workshop is for those aged 18 and up, with 8 seats per session. The small group size ensures everyone gets a chance to be involved and ask questions. It will be an open forum, where feedback will enhance the experience.
