Theatre Thrives in Toronto with Mirvish Productions

Feb 20, 2024

Toronto is one of the biggest markets for live theatre in the world, and Mirvish Productions is a big part of what the Ontario capital has to offer.

With four major downtown theatres, Mirvish produces and presents dozens of plays and musicals every season. See hit Broadway and West End shows like SIX The Musical and Wicked at the Royal Alexandra and Princess of Wales Theatres. Or experience iconic music and dynamic performances at Tina The Tina Turner Musical at the CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre. Go for more intimate shows like Uncle Vanya and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead—starring Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd—at the CAA Theatre.

Beyond the shows to see, Mirvish also offers plenty of opportunities for Performance Groups, between multiple spring music festivals and the large MusicFest Canada, May 13-18. Reward your group for their excellent performance with a thrilling show in a beautiful theatre. For many of the shows, Mirvish offers study guides and teacher guides as well!

Along with the plays and musicals themselves, there are multiple enrichment experiences to add even more value to your visit, such as theatre tours diving into hidden stories and rich histories, postshow Q&As with the cast, and performance workshops led by industry professionals.

Being in Toronto, these theatres are also surrounded by other top attractions and destinations, such as Canada’s Walk of Fame, Ripley’s Aquarium, the CN Tower, Art Gallery of Ontario, Eaton Centre and much more.
