Alchemy Theatre is an innovative, emergent theatre group, and the amalgamation of the talents and dedication of a group of young actors from across the Lower Mainland. Having met while working together on the Vagabond Players’ production of Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), the group created something magical – and it wasn’t just the magic on the stage. This production brought together a pool of talented actors whose chemistry was undeniable, and who were drawn together through their mutual desire to produce alternative theatrical works as well as old classics with a new spin.
After officially forming their own theatre group in the spring of 2014, Alchemy Theatre staged their inaugural summer theatre production of Twelfth Night at The Bernie Legge Theatre, a befitting choice since this is where Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) was performed. They have since then returned to the Bernie Legge with their 2016 summer theatre production of Taming of the Shrew as well as mounting their productions of Agnes of God in November of 2015 at the PAL studio theatre, and Alice in Wonderland in December 2016 at Granville Island’s Studio 1398.
Alchemy Theatre is the operating name of Alchemy Theatre Society, a registered not for profit organization in the province of British Colombia.
