Ticket to a brighter future
If you would like to do more to ensure Centaur’s future, please click the “donate now” button. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.
If you already purchased tickets to MOB or Fences, someone will be in touch with you to extend a full credit towards your next ticket or subscription purchase. However, if you are able to donate your unused ticket(s), we will gratefully provide a tax receipt. It will take some time for us to contact all tickets holders, so we ask your patience. We will get around to absolutely everyone.
Closing down for an indeterminate time is a difficult blow to Centaur Theatre and hundreds of other businesses in Montreal’s cultural sector; we can’t begin to estimate the far-reaching effects. Any donation you are able to make at this time will be gratefully received. Even the gesture of not requesting a refund or credit for your unused ticket will make a difference. To convert your unused ticket to a tax-deductible donation please contact our Box Office Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a rare stillness replaces the music, theatre, dance, film, and comedy events that make Montreal one of Canada’s most dynamic cities, we are heartened by Quebec’s diverse communities working together to help those at risk during this uncertain time. Join us in applauding the 7,000 nurses coming out of retirement to bolster hospital staffs, neighbours checking in on the elderly and less mobile to ensure their safety and comfort, and citizens donating blood and making sure food banks are stocked. Unbound by “social distancing”, the internet takes centre stage as enterprising individuals establish social media groups to connect those in need with those who can help. Comedians, musicians, dancers, actors, and visual artists are sharing their art and entertainment online. Groups dedicated to “positive posting” are popping up everywhere to keep spirits high … we encourage you to join one or even better, start one of your own!
We live in a remarkable city that will outlive this temporary setback and rise like a phoenix to shine brighter than before. We can’t wait to see you again soon and to get back to doing what we love: bringing you the best in theatre.
Centaur Theatre has welcomed, entertained and inspired over two and a half million theatre-goers over the past 50 years. We strive to put on stage engaging and relevant stories of the highest caliber. When you become a donor, you enjoy exclusive benefits and most importantly, you help us make great theatre in the heart of Montreal. For more information or to make a donation, please give us a call during our regular office hours at 514-288-1229, send our Development Department an email, or send a cheque by mail made out to Centaur Theatre Company to:

“A true cultural treasure of our city, Centaur Theatre has time and again presented us with astounding theatrical portrayals of some of the best playwrights. August Wilson’s acclaimed play, Fences, was one of our first discussions when we met many years ago, and we are delighted this play will be performed on the Centaur stage in 2020. Truly, it is to our benefit to be patrons of Centaur Theatre as our lives are richer by the cultural and artistic knowledge we gain from this excellent organization.”

“Centaur Theatre is a powerhouse of brilliant entertainment and creative excellence. Its productions continue to inspire, enthrall and unite us all in celebrating the human spirit. My favourite last year was The Last Wife – it was simply outstanding!! I also loved The Children, Hosanna, Bus Stops…. and the best is yet to come!”

“The artistic creators at Centaur Theatre lead the way in theatrical story-telling and we applaud you! It’s real, it’s tangible and it’s live! A couple of our favourites include Playing With Fire: The Theo Fleury Story and Balconville. Thank you for the outstanding stories and for igniting the conversation among our friends and family!”
