Studio58 (Theatre Arts), the professional theatre training program at Langara College, presents four full-length plays and two “Risky Nights” projects between October and April. All productions are designed and directed by professionals from the Vancouver theatre community. Theatre Arts students in the 4th, 5th, and 6th terms of the acting program perform in the shows, and production students, along with lower-term acting students, work backstage and provide technical support.
