Founded in 2008 as a not-for-profit offshoot of Children’s Arts Theatre School, MAINSTAGE THEATRE COMPANY is a registered charitable organization dedicated to guiding young performing artists to personal and professional success.
Our exciting program gives pre-professional artists ages 11 to 21 the opportunity to create and experience the magic and power of professional theatre. Under the direction of Artistic Director Alain Richer, MAINSTAGE is supported by a team of professional artists boasting some of Canada’s theatre leaders. An enriched and intense rehearsal process culminates in an audition-based musical theatre production. Known for the skill of its actors, beautifully designed and crafted sets and costumes, and helmed by industry professionals, our productions are an audience hit, and our program has become a competitor in the theatre education industry.
Our intensive actor-training program unlocks our students’ unique and creative talents, and provides the tools aspiring actors need to make the most of their potential.
