One of Vancouver’s most important legal events and a valued tradition, The Lawyer Show is a fundraiser for two of Vancouver’s most cherished theatre institutions: Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, both registered charities. Every year, thirty or so lawyers take to the boards to prove that acting and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided that we must cancel this year’s Lawyer Show due to COVID-19. The well-being and safety of our cast, supporters and audience is our top priority.
We currently plan to stage Mamma Mia! as the 2021 The Lawyer Show next spring.
We want to thank our talented and enthusiastic participants for the wonderful work they’ve done in rehearsals and we look forward to gathering again next year.
As non-profit theatre organizations, Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre depend on the support of the Lawyer Show fundraiser to allow us to continue to create and produce excellent live theatre for the community. The Lawyer Show is the signature fundraising event for both organizations, who have been producing theatre in Vancouver for over 40 years and who, together, have received over 100 Jessie nominations in the past six seasons alone. We rely on this event to allow us to do the work of producing theatre and providing many community outreach activities.
If you purchased a ticket to the show and haven’t received an email about your tickets already, we’ll be in touch soon.
If you would like to support both Carousel and Touchstone as we navigate the difficulties of maintaining strong theatre organization during this time, please consider a donation to Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre. Your donation is a truly valuable contribution that will help us weather the storm until we are once again able to present live theatre to our audiences and return to the work that we love.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at the Lawyer Show next year.
