Our Mission

PLEIADES THEATRE produces plays from the Canadian and international repertoires. With excellence the hallmark of our work, our mission is to celebrate different cultures in the world through plays that originate in languages other than English. We present these in modern, Canadian translations and innovative productions. New or classical, they are selected for their entertainment value and because they introduce writers and styles not widely known to Toronto audiences. We maintain a special tie to the French language and its literature, which broadens our access to material from other cultures in the world. Also, through training, workshops and outreach, we make a concerted effort to ensure that the creative process of theatre is accessible to young people of various cultural backgrounds. We do this through our bilingual educational program, Speak the Speech! This work is integral to our operation and our philosophy.


Pleiades Theatre brings people together from various cultures, languages and communities for the enjoyment of live theatre.

Speak the Speech, our bilingual youth outreach program, inspires young people to discover their creative potential through drama and gives them an opportunity to experience the excitement of theatre.

Whatever donation level you choose you can be proud to know you are helping to light up lives by bringing people, young and old, into a darkened theatre to watch new worlds unfold.
