Theatre Kingston is the city’s professional theatre producing company, operating as the resident company in the Grand Theatre. Theatre Kingston presents 4 shows a year in the Grand Theatre in addition to several child and youth engagement activities around the city. The company has been producing theatre for 25 years, introducing Kingston to some of Canada’s best plays and playwrights. It strives to provide emerging artists in the community with opportunities to work with and connect to professional artists from all over Canada. Our primary goal is to give our audiences examples of the art form at a calibre seen on the stages of the major Canadian urban centres.
Theatre is, at its core, about friendship and working together. And for this reason, we will be looking for ways to help other practitioners in the city develop their skills and have more opportunities to practice them. We are driven by the mission to continually strengthen the city’s theatre community and to allow the possibility for our stories and our artists to move beyond the city limits into the Canadian cultural landscape.
