EMBRACE YOUR TRUE NORTH NATURE
After 45 years, it’s time to celebrate. It’s time to celebrate our community, our culture, our heritage, and our voice. It’s time to celebrate the True North.
And, after 45 years, it’s time for the next stage.
To celebrate our milestone 45th Anniversary, STC is offering you a 16|17 Season unlike anything that has come before it. We are tripling our programming and adding a diversity of content that is unprecedented in our history.
We’re throwing open our doors to the performing arts and, for the first time, introducing a Music Series, Dance Series, Comedy Series, and Variety Series celebrating 150 years of Canadian culture, and anchored by a rousing mainstage Theatre Series and Young Audience Series dedicated to northern Ontario artists and stories.
