About Canadian Stage:
Founded in 1988 through a merger of CentreStage and Toronto Free Theatre, Canadian Stage (CS) runs modern theatres in Toronto. CS hosts shows at Berkeley Street Theatre, Bluma Appel Theatre and High Park Amphitheatre. The charity aspires to integrate theatre with dance, film and visual arts. It also trains up and coming artists, provides training guides to theatre students and gives scholarships to the best students.
In F2015, Canadian Stage spent $5.1m on its shows. Canadian Stage organized multiple shows, including Shakespeare in High Park. It funds new artists as part of Canadian Stage’s RBC Emerging Artist Program. The program involves free workshops and conferences, as well as ongoing training. Canadian Stage has a volunteer internship program, which has yielded 100 graduates.
