Saint John Theatre Company
Saint John Theatre Company aims to produce the highest standard of live theatre, and the most diverse English-language theatre programming in New Brunswick, using highly skilled local and regional talent.
A Message from Artistic Director, Stephen Tobias
Theatre (as we know it) has been around for roughly 2500 years, so the Saint John Theatre Company is still a relative newcomer in the scene. However, we are extremely proud of the 24 years of great story-telling that we have offered to the community. From humble beginning the SJTC has grown into a thriving arts organization that is making its impact felt throughout Southern NB. The SJTC is now one of the most prolific theatre producers in the province which is fitting for a community of the stature of Saint John. It’s a great city and we want to ensure that we have a great theatre company.
Our 25th year will be a big one on-stage with four separate series of works: Main Stage, Studio & Presentation Series, as well as the Fundy FRINGE Festival. Combined we will be offering over 25 theatre works to our audience. Beyond that: the SJTC will be busy off-stage as well. Education, Community and Literacy outreach in addition to Training & Mentorship activities are designed to make our community a little more vibrant; a little more cultural; a little more livable!
I invite you all to join us on this wonderful theatrical journey. Anchoring it all is our Main Stage series. Bond with your family at the ever-popular Sound of Music. Experience the full blown blending of theatre and symphonic music in the Tom Stoppard comedy, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour. Shed a tear at the touching and tragic romantic saga of The Great Gatsby. In the intimacy of our BMO Studio Theatre, come and share in some amazing stories such as Stephen Massicotte’s Mary’s Wedding and Harold Pinter’s Betrayal. We offer something for everyone this season. Come share in the work that celebrates the many talented people of southern NB!
