Grand Theatre

This fall, schools aren’t the only ones ready to reopen. Fall also marks the opening of the Grand Theatre’s new season!  

Operating on the traditional lands of the Attawandaron people, in the heart of downtown London, lies the historic Grand Theatre. A leading cultural hub, the Grand is a place for everyone of all ages, stages and backgrounds to gather, celebrate, and be inspired by exceptional theatre experiences. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum and Executive Director Evan Klassen, the Grand is building a bold future with daring projects, inspiring programs, and a captivating new direction. 

World Curious and London Proud, the Grand is thrilled to bring the world to London by staging diverse and original stories from around the globe, and through collaborations with exceptional national and international performing arts organizations. We are also dedicated to bringing London to the world, with a commitment to staging new and original stories through COMPASS, our new play development program. 

An ardent supporter of educational programming, the Grand is known nation-wide for its incomparable offerings and mentorship programs for students – exemplified best by The High School Project (HSP). The only project of its kind in North America, the HSP offers a unique opportunity for students to receive education and hands-on training in the working environment of a professional theatre – provided exclusively by professional artists and coaches in all departments.

To ensure that theatre is accessible at all ages, the Grand proudly offers Student Club. Designed to suit a student budget, Student Club gives high school students a pass to see each show in the Grand’s season and participate in AfterWORDS – a guided discussion taking place directly after the show – for only $96. Subsidies are also available. 

Knowing that students bring incredible insights and energy, the Grand is always looking for students to volunteer with us! Our volunteers get great perks, like complimentary theatre tickets, and can also use their time with us towards their school’s volunteer hours for graduation. 

There has never been a better time to be a student at the Grand Theatre! So, sharpen your pencils, grab your knapsacks, and go back to the Grand this fall!
