Theatre & Performing Arts

For those who love live music or theatre, Richmond has two major performance venues: the River Rock Show Theatre at the River Rock Casino Resort, and the Gateway Theatre in Minoru Park.
Since 1984, the Gateway Theatre (6500 Gilbert Rd.) has offered a wide range of contemporary plays and classic musicals for theatre-lovers. It is the only live professional theatre in Richmond. It's easy to spot with its big glass windows overlooking the lawns and duck ponds of Minoru Park.
The 548-capacity MainStage has featured everything from Hello Dolly and Forever Plaid to adaptations of The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan. The smaller studio theatre, Studio B, often showcases the works of modern Canadian playwrights.
