Magnus Theatre

Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay, Thunder Bay District, Canada | Theatre

Welcome to Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay, Canada.   In 1971, British director Burton Lancaster had an idea to create a new Theatre company.  The idea took root not in New York, Toronto or Montreal, but in a medium-sized North American city of Thunder Bay with a healthy arts community and no professional Theatre to call its own. As the story goes, he closed his eyes and randomly placed his finger on a map of North America and landed on Thunder Bay in the remote wilderness of Northern Ontario.

Magnus Theatre has established a number of community relationships which include The Thunder Bay Children's Festival, the Mayor's Luncheon for the Arts, The Thunder Bay Fringe Festival, Arts Alive Festival, Arts & Heritage Alliance, The Chronicle Journal Arts & Heritage Awards, and Arts Week.   Magnus Theatre also shares its resources by renting the facility and costumes to companies for performances, as well as acting as a resource for community Theatre companies.

The vision of Magnus Theatre board members and staff, along with the support and nurturing Magnus receives from individuals and businesses in the community, has made Magnus Theatre one of the most successful Theatre companies in CanadaMagnus Theatre now employs up to 60 artists a year, including actors, directors and designers. Also, in the proud tradition of local support, Magnus Theatre has a volunteer base of over 250 individuals, which includes a dedicated and resourceful Board of Directors.
