our community

“The freedom and the emphasis on process over product are freeing and low pressure and it leaves room to be creative in a way I’ve never experienced before.”
Brandon Ash-Mohammed
“The Theatre Centre’s programs allow artists like me to take major risks. It is an essential bridge between the artistic community and the audiences who seek to experience experimental and deeply personal works.”
Hannah Moscovitch
Residency Alum
“Working in the Incubator space these past two weeks was transformative... Being hosted at The Theatre Centre made us feel held, safe, and included...Your support and trust literally made our workshop possible.”
Jill Connell
“Great coffee house. Great coffee. Great theatre. Great staff. Really gives you the vibe of an amazing city! Love it! Also their coffee reward system is awesome. After 5 coffees you get one free, after 10 coffees you get a free theatre ticket!”

where we are

The Theatre Centre resides on stolen land in Tkaronto — a gathering place that has been home to the Anishinaabe, including the Mississaugas of the Credit; the Haudenosaunee; and the Wendat since time immemorial. We offer our gratitude to all past, present, and future generations of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples that care for Turtle Island. Tkaronto is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum, an agreement forged between the Anishinaabe Nation and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy to peaceably share resources; and Treaty 13, an alleged agreement between settlers and the Mississaugas of the Credit.

Like many arts organizations, The Theatre Centre has directly benefited from settler-colonialism throughout its past to the present day. By making our home in Tkaronto, we take on a role that comes with responsibilities to the land and its stewards. We are committed to using our voice and platform to support those already doing the work, but we know we still have a long way to go.
