The Theatre Gallery

The Gallery was created by re-claiming unused space under the Theatre seating area. It is used not only for displaying visual art projects of Burnaby South students, but is also used for meetings, catering, dining, a warm up and rehearsal area, and a lobby overflow area as well. It is home to the Theatre quilt, which hangs on the wall just inside the north doors.

The Golf Tournament

The Michael J Fox Theatre Annual Golf Tournament and Gala was conceived as a fundraising event for the Theatre. Sold out every year from the inaugural event in 2000 through to the final in 2017. the tournament and evening gala (held at Hilton Vancouver Metrotown Hotel from 2002-2017), along with live and silent auctions, raised considerable funding used for capital upgrades in the Theatre.

We want to thank our sponsors, volunteers, and everyone involved for your assistance in ensuring the success of the Golf Tournament and Gala and the development of the Michael J Fox Theatre. We were honoured to partner with you in support of this worthy cause.
