Arts students once attended conservatory classes with dreams of making it to the Stratford or Shaw festivals. The emerging artist of today has a whole new dream for making it: making it their own!

A vibrant community is emerging with independently produced arts projects in intimate, unique spaces. These independent productions “are finding avid, largely local audiences, many of whom don’t necessarily identify as theatregoers, but are drawn in by the casual, fringe festival-style atmospheres” (Globe and Mail).

We specialize in the tenants of grassroots theatre: creative use of small spaces; the creative ability to problem-solve with limited resources; the intimate actor–audience dynamic; and the cross trained artist.
