Arts & Culture


Putting Montreal On-Stage Since 1969

For the past 54 years, Centaur Theatre has been at the heart of Montreal’s performing arts community.

Throughout our half-century history, we have been the city’s leading English-language theatre, consistently staging high-quality, relevant, and inclusive live productions that bring audiences together for the shared experience of being moved, challenged, and transformed by the magic of theatre.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we look forward to continuing this legacy for the next 54 years and beyond.

Our Impact

Contributing to a Healthy, Vibrant Society, One Play at a Time

At Centaur, we are 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 society. By using the stage to train a fresh lens on the experience of being human, we foster an expansive spirit in artists and audiences alike.
