The Alumnae Theatre Company is 100 Years Young!

unnamedContributed by Elizabeth Verwey
ATC started off performing on the Hart House Theatre stage in 1918, and they’ve been at Firehall No. 4 (Berkeley Street) since 1972.  We’re dedicated to the production of adventurous, high-quality theatre not readily seen elsewhere, and to the promotion and skill development of women in theatre.

 
The Alumnae Theatre Company is celebrating 100 years of continuous production, making it the oldest theatre in Toronto! There’s a rich history of Canadian Premieres at this theatre! The upcoming season includes three exciting plays and two Festivals; the New Ideas and Fireworks Festivals.

 
Our 2017/18 season opens with a Gala on Friday, October 20th with Thirteen Hands, by Carol Shields. There is a birthday bash at the opening of Omission on January 19th. Please join us at one of these celebrations? We’d love to mark this important milestone with you!

 
We’ll also be at the Cabbagetown Festival this year to share news about volunteer opportunities and special deals on tickets for our 100th season. Find out more at www.alumnaetheatre.com
