Who We Are

DCP inspires courage and humanity through arts education.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to share the spotlight; share their point of view through the art form of storytelling that is theatre.  We provide theatre education for students from diverse backgrounds. Downstage Center Productions (DCP) has been serving the Vancouver area since 2020. Founded by Heather Lundy Kahl, DCP provides fundraising and development for theatre education as well as performance production support through volunteers, and we sponsor special events for the community.

Our Board's Core Values

1. Have integrity in all we do.

Integrity is doing what’s right even when no one is watching and making decisions that serve our students.

2. Find the creative solution and make it work.

Figure it out. Don’t let obstacles stand in our way - get creative and come up with a solution.

3. Lead with perseverance.

It takes hard work, dedication, and practice to win. Bring that to the table every day.

4. Be a moth.

Be drawn to the work that needs to be done where you can use your strengths.

5. Inclusive or bust!

There is a place for everyone here, our differences are what lead to greatness. There is no tolerance for anything less.
