Employer Profile

Massey Theatre Society operates two distinct theatre facilities in New Westminster. The Society also facilitates a dynamic array of community and performing arts organizations through its theatrical facilities, storage, scenery rental program and complete technical, patron and ticketing services.

The historic Massey Theatre (est. 1949) is a 1260 seat road house most active in the areas of concerts, dance productions and musical theatre. It is a long-valued venue in the region and houses the largest seating capacity outside Vancouver. The Society is also theatre operator in a new Civic facility, Anvil Centre (est. 2014). This is a 361 seat non-proscenium, flexible configuration theatre. Anvil Centre also contains a Conference Centre, Museum and Archives, New Media Gallery and a number of arts studios and practice rooms. A plan is in motion to replace the historic Massey Theatre with a new 1,000 seat regional theatre with full theatrical amenities (scene shop, studios, and expanded public service areas).
