Royal MTC was Canada’s first English-language regional theatre when it formed in 1958. In the contravening decades, through the mounting of more than 600 plays, the company has built a name for itself and is known for exceptional theatre and high-quality production. The mainstage theatre, completed in 1970, was renamed for one of the company’s founders, John Hirsch, in 2008, and in 2010 received royal designation by Queen Elizabeth II. On the mainstage, you’ll see everything from classics to Broadway hits to new work by Canadian playwrights. Shows deftly balance mass appeal with thought-provoking themes. See what’s on now here.
