The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (Royal MTC) is a community-based, registered charitable not-for-profit arts organization. MTC was Canada’s first English-speaking regional theatre and, under founding Artistic Director John Hirsch, became a model for regional theatres throughout North America.
Royal MTC exists to celebrate the widest spectrum of theatre art. Deeply rooted in the province of Manitoba, which gave it life and provides for its growth, Royal MTC aspires to both reflect and inform the community it serves.
Under Artistic Director Steven Schipper and General Manager Camilla Holland, Royal MTC now presents over 250 performances annually for more than 150,000 theatre lovers. Royal MTC produces six plays at the John Hirsch Mainstage, four plays at the Tom Hendry Warehouse, as well as a regional tour, which annually travels to communities throughout Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.
Royal MTC also produces the Master Playwright Festival  and the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival (, North America’s second-largest Fringe Festival.
Since 1958, Royal MTC has relied on the generousity of donors who help us continue to produce the exciting and innovative work on our two stages.
