We are thrilled to finally be back and offer an actual season of theatre. We have two mainstage plays as we introduce a new and convenient way to enjoy a year of live theatre through the new Go Live @ Centaur membership program. Associate Artist, Rose Plotek, will direct a third mainstage production and we hope to announce a fourth play, once the season is underway. Stay tuned for those exciting announcements.
Loads of Laughs for the Holidays
From November 16 to December 5, the mischievous Rebecca Northan directs her latest play, All I Want for Christmas. Settle in for hysterical holiday humour as the smooth-running North Pole is thrown into chaos when an unexpected “outsider” breaches Santa’s mailroom on a young elf’s first night on the job.
Centaur Makes Theatre History
From January 25 to February 13, Centaur Theatre collaborates with the prestigious Théâtre du Nouveau Monde for the very first time to co-produce English and French productions of Michel Marc Bouchard’s new play, Kisses Deep, translated by Linda Gaboriau. Centaur’s Artistic Director, Eda Holmes directs both productions in this touching story about a young man who worships Yves St-Laurent. A devoted son, he knows he can design the perfect outfit to redeem his mother’s character for her day in court.

September 2 to 11, the Imago Theatre/Onishka co-production of Okinum, kicks off the 53rd season.
