About Us -



Theatre Newfoundland Labrador (TNL) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and producing professional theatre which reflects the lives and diversity of our audiences on the provinces west coast, extending to Labrador and across the island of Newfoundland

For over 25 years, Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador has been putting on quite a show. Many shows in fact! Our sold-out summer season at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival in beautiful Cow Head now has to turn audiences away--we just can't accommodate them in our current facilities. And just thinking of new and better facilities allows to imagine how much more we could do--from workshops to residencies to touring to extending the reach of our year-round programs.
