Welcome to our Centennial Season
Alumnae Theatre is celebrating 100 years of continuous production with its 2017/18 season. We have been entertaining Torontonians with topical, thought-provoking and adventurous theatre for a century, making us the longest running theatre company in the city. We're also the oldest women-run theatre company in North America.
100th birthday celebrations
Alumnae Theatre Company's 100th Birthday Party featured special guest The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and was followed by the world premiere performance of Omission written by Alice Abracen and directed by Anne Harper.
Up Next: Queen Marie
April 13 to 28 on the Mainstage
This larger-than-life musical written by Alumnae member Shirley Barrie explores the life and times of actress Marie Dressler, an Ontario native who won international fame in the 1930s. Known for her lively and tenacious personality, Marie began her career touring with travelling theatre companies, moved on to vaudeville and Broadway comedy roles, and rose to stardom through her film work with some of Hollywood’s most notable icons such as Charlie Chaplin and Greta Garbo.
Expect a funny, vibrant production, much like Marie herself.
