Centaur Stage with Marcel Jeannin
Marcel Jeannin, one of Quebec’s most beloved stage and voice actors, returns to Centaur Theatre as Jon Macklem in Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes. Jeannin is a Centaur favorite, having first stepped onstage over three decades ago for Woman in Mind in 1989. Jeannin took time to chat with Centaur about his current production, and how things have changed (or not)!

Welcome to the Party!
At long last, we are daring to dream that we will be back together in the theatre again. If you are reading this then it is likely that you are someone who is already at least a little bit familiar with Centaur Theatre – and I want to tell you how great it is to be back in contact! If you are completely new to us then I extend a warm welcome to the party!

Imagining the Future
Climate change frightens me. Like a monster lurking in the shadows, it feels ominous and scary. It’s a BIG situation that merits BIG reactions, often leaving me feeling helpless, unsure of what to do, stuck.
