revisit, renew, reimagine

BYGONE THEATRE is a registered charity founded in 2012. Our mandate is to produce theatre written or set in the early-to-mid 20th century, focusing on historical aspects in design and incorporating a classic cinema aesthetic. We strive to create and produce historically accurate theatre with classic cinema  tropes and aesthetics. We serve Toronto by; producing character driven stories written or set during the early to mid-twentieth century; educating students and audience members on our shows and their place in history; providing artists with practical training and advice on how to produce quality period productions as an independent theatre artist. In 2020, our Sustainability Mandate was presented at the United Nations SDG Action Awards and we expanded our Diversity and Accessibility Mandates to include clear, quantifiable goals. In fall of 2021 we were awarded the Toronto Star Readers' Choice Award, Diamond Level, for Best Live Theatre. We started off our 10th season as a registered charity, and in August of 2023 we moved into our first space, The Bridge, at 379 Adelaide St. W., making low-cost rehearsal and performance rentals available to local artists.
