The New Emergent Studio Theatre (The NEST, for short) is an intimate and flexible performance space. It’s an affordable black box theatre, featuring customizable riser seating and the option to uncover the windows, providing lots of natural light that fills the theatre. The NEST is great for workshops, small and emerging theatre productions, festivals, and rehearsals. Housed on the third floor of Festival House, the NEST is owned by CMHC-Granville Island, and stewarded by the Granville Island Theatre District.
