Surrey SPARK Stages

Surrey Spark Stages

Igniting imaginations and making memories.

As Canadians, we celebrate our diverse cultural heritage, and the growth of our younger generations to learn and explore what this country, and this planet, has to offer. In Surrey, this isn’t any different, and we want to inspire our children to greater possibilities. This is where the Surrey SPARK Stages come in.

Evolved from the Surrey International Children’s Festival, Surrey SPARK Stages is a series of year-round memory-making performing arts experiences created especially for kids and families that starts with a bang with a weekend of spectacular theatre performances and activities.  From aerial circus to music, these performances are for the whole family with shows for babies, toddlers, and tweens that grown-ups will love too!

The weekend festivities kick off with Light the SPARK! a dance party for the whole family, and during the weekend, the Surrey Arts Centre will be sprinkled with a magical sparkle dusting in the form of plenty of value-added activities for ticket holders to enjoy like puppet making, dancing, delightful pop-up performances, and many other “sparkalicious” surprises!

Highlights for launch weekend (May 26 – 28, 2023):

  • Light the SPARK! – All ages dance party.
  • Doodle POP! – The story of a comical doodling duo comes to life using whiteboard drawings, animation, and a live musical score with sound effects.
  • Won’Ma Africa – Courageous feats of balance and strength as acrobats tumble and leap to lively drum rhythms
  • Pinocchio – A wild and music-filled show takes puppet Pinocchio on a dangerous adventure full of odd characters, temptations, and deceptions.
  • Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch – This heartwarming puppet play explores how kindness and caring about others makes us all feel good.
  • Tricoter – Recreating the spirit of a knitting circle, the dancer and their brightly coloured balls of yarn wind and unwind through and around the audience to live violin music.
