Mid-century Madness – Celebrating 60 years at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre

Vancouver Civic Theatres is throwing “Mid-Century Madness” a costume party to celebrate the past 60 years of performance and community at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

On Saturday, October 26th, dress up in your favourite 60’s attire, think the stylings of one “Don Draper” or rather, “Peggy Olson”, and prepare for a journey in our time machine.

The year is 1959, shoppers are on the hunt for the latest in mod fashion at the newly opened Oakridge Shopping Centre. In the background, children are buzzing over the first Barbie doll just about to hit the shelves and an eerie theme song from The Twilight Zone, a newly introduced television show, plays in the distance. This is the year that Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre welcomes its first guests.

Mid-Century Madness” celebrates the 60 years of the beloved QE theatre and the talented artists and show stopping entertainers to grace the Vancouver stage.

Enjoy a welcome glass of bubbly, make your way through the flashing lights and glam photo booth, take in art from the decade, and party in style throughout the Queen Elizabeth Theatre lobby exhibits. Get ready to dance the night away with a vibrant and soulful live performance by Vancouver’s own Dawn Pemberton and musical stylings by DJ Veronica and Trumpeter Malcolm Aiken late into the night.

  1. If I could fly my broomstick to Vancouver I would spend the day with my daughter walking around in full costume while dining out. We’d make sure to be as ghoulish as can be. Nothing like two gouls out on the town.
