Who we are
Centaur Theatre, located in the heart of Old Montreal, is devoted to telling stories on stage that expand our perceptions of the world. We believe theatre serves a vital role in creating a healthy, democratic and progressive community by fostering an expansive spirit in artists and audiences alike by training a fresh lens on their experiences of being human.
What we do
In addition to award-winning mainstage productions from local, national and international playwrights, we also offer programmes that discover and develop emerging and established artists from all backgrounds, building theatrical bridges between Centaur and all of Montreal. Here are some of our ancillary initiatives:
- Saturday Salons Intimate, enriching conversations with artists.
- Saturday Morning Children’s Series
- Wildside @ Centaur: Annual festival of cutting edge theatre
- Portico Project: Annual outdoor event on the steps outside Centaur
- A 2020 panel of five members was conceived to investigate and implement policies and programs that redress historical inequities created by institutional racism as part of the Artistic Diversity Discussion @ Centaur
- 2021-22 Indigenous Artist Residency
- Staged readings of new scripts
