Purchase your $5 membership to gain access to the Festival. Without your membership fee there simply could not be a Festival as 100% of the base ticket price goes right into performers’ pockets. Your $5 Membership allows you to join the First Vancouver Theatrespace Society, and you are also entitled to participate in its direction by attending the society’s Annual General Meeting in 2016. Membership is valid until August 31, 2016. You will be required to present your card at each show you attend. If you are unable to present a card, you will be required to purchase another one at that time. All completed membership cards will be entered into a draw for a 2016 Festival Pass!
