Celebrating World Theatre Day 2022

March 27 is World Theatre Day

Every year on World Theatre Day we like to take a moment to celebrate theatre and all those who make it possible for us to make our art every day. 

“Theatre is the place where we come together as people to celebrate our collective humanity. We need that now more than ever.” 

Eda Holmes
Artistic & Executive Director, Centaur Theatre

Just as the days are beginning to stretch longer than the nights, our outlook is brightening every day. We’ve had so many encouraging words and such steadfast support over the last two years that we can’t help but feel optimistic about what the future holds. Every note you send and every kind word you share stays with us and we take them all to heart! 

We’d like to share with you some of the kind words we’ve received from our donors.

-Haleema, Liana and Scott, Centaur’s Development team

“We are proud to support Centaur Theatre. In high school, I saw A Streetcar Named Desire at Centaur. I felt the energy of the live performances, I was hooked for life!” 

Puneet Mehta & Rosamaria Koppes

Without our wonderful and generous supporters, not to mention all the theatre-lovers who have been waiting patiently for us to reopen our doors, it would not be possible for us to continue to put great stories on stage.

“I have so enjoyed Centaur performances over many years and cannot see a future without this temple of theatre open to Montrealers.”

Linda Serpone

It’s been a momentous year of emotional ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns but we made it and you were there with us through it all, letting us know how important Centaur Theatre is to you.

“[Je donne] pour garder ce beau théâtre ouvert 😍  La culture est primordiale dans notre société!”
