About Us

Stage 43 Theatrical Society is a not-for-profit community theatre group that has been producing quality, affordable theatre in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody area of British Columbia since 1983. We produce three shows each season at the Evergreen Cultural Centre - one in October, one in January, and one in the spring. We are part of the Theatre BC Fraser Valley Zone and a member of the Community Theatre Coalition.

In 2010 we won, along with many other honours, Theatre BC's Best Production Award, which is the Stanley Cup of community theatre, for our production of Ravenscroft. Over the years we have been proud to take home many other awards as well - from Theatre BC Zone Festivals and the Community Theatre Coalition. In 2017, our production of Bingo! won 5 awards at the Fraser Valley Zone Festival (Best Properties, Best Supporting Female Actor [tie], Best Ensemble, Best Director, and Best Production). Bingo! then went on to represent the Fraser Valley Zone at Theatre BC's Mainstage, where we were honoured with 2 awards (Best Sound, Best Lighting).

We are proud to call the Tri-Cities our home, and we continue to make our community connections a priority.
We are very grateful for the ongoing support of our season sponsors The Saint St. Grill and Blue Heron Fruit Winery.
