Goal and Mandate
To employ the top classical actors, directors and designers across the country in an effort to produce world class Shakespeare here in Toronto.
To present imaginative productions of Shakespeare’s plays that are accessible, entertaining, inspiring and relevant to today’s audiences.
To break down traditional boundaries between audience and artist/art and find new ways to fuse the disciplines of music and dance with theatre.
To offer the same, high quality experience to underserved communities in Toronto through innovative initiatives (workshops, outreach programs, pre-show talks, reduced ticket price to performances).
To foster young Canadian talent through mentorship and apprenticeship programs, preshow talks, seminars etc. in an effort to inspire a new generation of artists dedicated to Shakespeare’s work.
