Help Sustain Culturally Diverse Theatre in Canada, Now

Diversity around us inspires us to create theatre that reflects shared values of who we are as Canadians. We pursue an inclusive and multicultural vision of theatre that is entertaining and provocative at the same time. We search for new voices, pursue multi-ethnic casting and publish Canada’s only theatre quarterly alt.theatre dedicated to cultural diversity and the stage.

Your support is critical to fulfil our mission and secure our future. We must raise at least third of our revenues in addition to government support and ticket sales to deliver our program and grow.

Your support directly enables us to:
