For the past 16 years, Theatre Ancaster has provided excellence in musical theatre to Ancaster and the surrounding community. In addition to providing the community with quality productions, Theatre Ancaster is also dedicated to “the development of musical theatre among the adults and youth of the community.”


One of Theatre Ancaster’s annual productions is put on by local high school students. Rehearsals run on Monday nights from September to March. Participants gain invaluable experience working with others, developing self-confidence, and learning the skills of the theatre industry. Students do not have to audition to become involved with the production; however, an enrollment fee is required.


Theatre Ancaster is a not for profit organization as well as a registered charity. All company profit provides enhanced facilities and equipment. As a result, outside support is greatly appreciated. Through donations, Theatre Ancaster hopes to reduce enrollment fees for students, and to assist with transportation costs for employees or volunteers.
