Meet The Team: Lenard Stanga


Storyteller for Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours

Lenard (he/him) grew up in small-town central interior BC, near 100 Mile House. In young adulthood he moved to Calgary for a decade, and finally found his home in Vancouver in 1998. He started his acting career in high school, going on to train at the University of Calgary and working on major stages throughout Western Canada. Acting has taken Lenard across the globe, including tours in Japan, Singapore, and South Korea. 

Today, much of his work is created with Pangaea Arts, an intercultural world arts theatre. Lenard has also self-produced a lot, with a range of shows including theatre for young audiences, puppet & mask performance, and street theatre storytelling shows. 

Lenard always dabbled in history alongside his performance career. When he discovered Forbidden Vancouver offered historical walking tours he said, “It was as if my two worlds collided! Everything about the company looked appealing! And I was right!”

Lenard joined us in 2017 as a Forbidden Vancouver Tour guide, and genuinely loves connecting with people who attend his tours. You can also catch him at the Burnaby Village Museum. This summer, Lenard will be performing at festivals with Stories on Wheels, a street theatre picture-card storytelling show on the back of a bicycle. Join Lenard on a Forbidden Vancouver Tour.
