The original company was founded in 2010 by a group of Canada’s top musical theatre artists – many of who are Broadway and international theatre stars – with a mission to advance the development of musical theatre in Canada.
Since its inception, the company supported the development of Canadian musical theatre through various workshops of new musicals, outreach initiatives, and its workshop for aspiring musical theatre writers. It ran the Company We Keep cabaret series with regular sold-out performances and has produced two large-scale musicals – the original Canadian musical Bloodless: The Trial of Burke and Hare (nominated for 9 Dora Mavor Moore Awards) and the classic musical Company (winner of 4 Broadway World Awards).
In 2016 and early 2017 the company went through a transition with a new trade name, a re-freshed Board of Directors and a new artistic vision with a new structure.
What People Are Saying
"Oftentimes art lives in silos. Visual, media, dance, theatre arts and all the other art forms that reside inside that spectrum live side by side but rarely intersect in one production. We’d love to combine many of these elements to create an explosion of art. "
— Evan Tsitsias, Artistic Director
