THEN AND NOW: PANDEMIC LIFE STORIES - STREAM UPDATE
The Delta Stageworks artist collective presented Then & Now, Pandemic Life Stories – a multimedia staged reading, at Genesis Theatre, Ladner, BC in November 2021.
The show features 10 community and professional theatre-makers and traces the ups and downs, the laughs and the lows of the lockdown life we’ve all been experiencing since March 2020. Audiences responded with enthusiasm and a big sense of shared identity with the stories we told.
In early 2023, we will presenting an updated version of the Stream with all new on and off stage content, reflecting on the effects of the pandemic, where we are with it now, and what has changed for our company of artists who worked on this project across the years!

HEIRLOOMS AND BAGGAGE - My Mother’s Story
From a series of writing and devised theatre workshops held over the past year, a new Delta Stageworks theatrical project has emerged, Heirlooms and Baggage, (My Mother’s Story), created by five Stageworks working collaboratively. The writing process has been led by Marilyn Norry (mymothersstory.org) while the devised theatre work has been led by Cory Haas.
The show involves the life stories of the actor/collaborators’ mothers – the triumphs and the tribulations – told in a devised-theatre storytelling technique that combines group movement, spoken text and images.
The show will premiere in the spring of 2023, and embraces the company’s commitment to foster diversity and inclusivity in our community; creating space for diverse voices and lived experiences.
“Greater Vancouver is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, and yet it’s surprisingly rare that we hear or see the life stories of women who come from this incredible cultural mosaic that’s all around us,” says Marilyn Norry.

2022 COMMUNITY ARTS!
THE RESET Weekend
On June 17 & 18, 2022 Delta Stageworks co-organized THE RESET Weekend, a community arts event in support of resilience, connection and mental health wellness.
Together with local arts leaders and counselling professionals at Alongside You, a Ladner, BC mental health counselling provider, we put together a series of workshop events in visual arts, dance, music and theatre designed to support a mental health ‘reset’ for participants.
A very happening music jam for local musicians kicked off the weekend and workshop participants enjoyed getting in touch with their creative side:
“Thanks Delta Stageworks for the Musical Theatre workshop…It was really enlightening! Love the idea of The Reset Weekend, and hope it happens again”
