The Fahr Group is proud to be supporting the Manitoba Theatre Centre as part of the Director’s Circle.
The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (MTC) is a community-based, registered charitable not-for-profit arts organization. MTC was Canada’s first English-speaking regional theatre and, under founding Artistic Director John Hirsch, became a model for regional theatres throughout North America.
Under Artistic Director Steven Schipper and General Manager Camilla Holland, MTC now presents over 250 performances annually for more than 150,000 theatre-lovers. MTC produces 6 plays at The John Hirsch Theatre at the MTC Mainstage, 4 plays at The Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse, as well as a regional tour, which annually travels to communities throughout Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.
When John Hirsch and Tom Hendry founded the Manitoba Theatre Centre in 1957 as the first English speaking regional theatre in Manitoba, their goal was to create great professional theatre with mass appeal. Now more than 50year after our founders envisioned a centre for theatre in Manitoba, MTC continues to do all they dreamed of and more, including an enjoyment of an international reputation as one of Canada’s finest regional theatres.
