the History of Theatre in Vaasa


Starting with this fall, the Tikanoja Art Museum offers a peek into the stage life of Vaasa. The exhibition on the second floor of the art museum provides an overview of the theatre history in Vaasa, from the time of traveling theater troupes in the 19th century to the present day. The exhibition will highlight pieces from the history of the Vaasa City Theatre, the Wasa Teater, the Vaasa Opera and the Puppet Theatre Peukalopotti.

The cultural history exhibition, presents, among other things, stage-themed material belonging to the Ostrobothnian museums collections, such as photographs and costumes worn by professor Irma Rewell (1929-2010) in various opera productions. The museum collections will also highlight artefacts and art, related to the stage theme from the Puppet Theater Peukalopotti. In addition, material borrowed from the Vaasa City Theatre, the Wasa Teater and the Vaasa Opera will be exhibited, such as scale models, costumes and photographs.
The exhibition has been produced by the Vaasa City Museums in collaboration with the Vaasa City Theatre and the Wasa Teater. It presents the citys long theater tradition and it celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Vaasa City Theatre and the Wasa Teater, which turned one hundred years old in 2019.
