Event Notes

× Founded in 1971, Magnus Theatre has influenced the careers of hundreds of professional theatre artists and been the starting point for dozens of award winning world premiere productions.

On November 27 2022, join us at The Chanterelle for a one-time-only retrospective on the history of northern Ontario’s only professional theatre, through the eyes of the people who made it happen. A singular event in Canadian theatre, the evening will feature a round-table discussion with Brian Richmond (Artistic Director 1982-87), Mario Crudo (Artistic Director 1992-2016), Michael McLaughlin (Artistic Director 1987-1992), Thom Currie (Artistic Director 2016-Present), Rosalie Woloski (Wife of Tibor Feheregyhazi, Artistic Director 1978-1982) and Rebecca Lancaster (Daughter of Burton Lancaster, Founding Artistic Director 1971-1977). The evening will be moderated by Governor General Award Nominated playwright and former Artistic Director of Native Earth Performing Arts, Keith Barker.

Enjoy a gourmet dinner and an insider’s trip through the history of one of Canada’s great regional theatres, as told by the people who were there.
