The Theatre Centre


More than a theatre.

The Theatre Centre is a nationally recognized live-arts incubator and community hub. Our mission is to offer a home for creative, cultural and social interactions to invent the future. We make work that spans disciplines and genres; work that pushes the boundaries of what is considered “art”. Our programming and our role as a community space are inextricably linked. Art is not made in a silo: it is connected to the world around it. 

We offer one of the only non-transactional spaces in the neighbourhood. It is a community hub and a place to gather; a place where you — regardless of class, race, ethnicity, religion, or ability — are welcome to be. You don’t have to identify as an artist or performer to use the space. We want you to feel at home here.

When you support us, you support the future of creativity.

Our core activities can be organized into five categories:

CREATING: Residency provides artists with the resources of money, space, time, and mentorship to create new works over long periods, from idea to production.

PRODUCING: We produce the work developed from our Residency program.

PRESENTING: We present national and international performances, placing the work of Toronto artists in a global context.

MOVING THE WORK: We grow networks and manage touring opportunities for work developed in Residency.

SHARING: We believe that resources go further when you share them. We practice this concept in all our activities, from our café's pay-it-forward coffee program to our long-term relationships for non-venued companies.
