The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (Royal MTC) is a community-based, registered charitable not-for-profit arts organization. MTC was Canada’s first English-speaking regional theatre and, under founding Artistic Director John Hirsch, became a model for regional theatres throughout North America.
Under Artistic Director Steven Schipper and General Manager Camilla Holland, Royal MTC now presents over 250 performances annually for more than 150,000 theatre-lovers. Royal MTC produces six plays at The John Hirsch Theatre at the MTC Mainstage, four plays at The Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse, as well as a regional tour, which annually travels to communities throughout Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.
Royal MTC also produces the Master Playwright Festival and the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival (www.winnipegfringe.com
), North America’s second-largest Fringe Festival.
