Join us in Celebrating World Theatre Day!

March 27th, 2024

PGC and our colleagues are encouraging all Canadians to get involved and support their local theatre companies this March through three simple actions:

·     Book a ticket to go see a show and post about it using #GoSeeAShow . Not sure where to start? You can find a map of national theatres and event listings by visiting:

·     Contact their elected officials at all levels to increase public support, by visiting: Show your Support for Canadian Theatres!

·     Encourage others by sharing a favourite theatre experience on social media using the hashtags #RallyForTheatre and #WorldTheatreDay

Working together, we will have a louder voice.
