Current Season:

Everything is Connected. All things are one. The Firehall's 35 Anniversary Season explores how what we choose to do in each moment has impact - positively or negatively- and how each of these little moments connects to everything and everyone. Through artistically exciting theatre and dance works, we will continue our long history of producing shows reflective of the Canadian experience - connecting through laughter, tears, conversation and thought.

  • Description of work:

    The Firehall strives to produce and present work that highlights and supports Canada’s multiculturalism. As the first company focusing on Canadian work with this intent, the Firehall broke through social barriers and helped playwrights, actors, dancers, performers and producers of various cultural backgrounds present work to audiences across the country.
