We are a collective of independent theatre creators and producers on a mission to support artists and innovate through artistic exploration. Over the years, Electric Company Theatre has taken bold risks that toured the world, wild risks that pushed the boundaries of the craft, and very special risks that remained in people’s hearts and minds for years. We hope that An Undeveloped Sound stays with you, as it has with us.

We are already working on our next new large-scale production, Fire Never Dies: The Tina Modotti Project by core artist, Carmen Aguirre, and we need your help. To create ambitious stage productions like An Undeveloped Sound, which involve dozens of artists and thousands of audience members, we rely on support from donors like you!

We invite you to consider becoming a monthly donor. Your support directly impacts the quality and craftsmanship of our productions. Every donation makes a real impact, and every dollar received always goes towards supporting our artists and creative teams.

PLUS! For the month of March, any new monthly donation received will be matched by Canada Helps! Read more about Make it Monthly March here.

Electric Company Theatre is a registered Canadian charity BN 872054168 RR0001.

With rising costs and the loss of artists from our industry, making live theatre is harder and harder to do.  We are also rebuilding our audience and working with funding agencies to identify our unique problems and the lack of resources to address them. Rising costs in theatre include artist fees, theatre rentals, technicians, costumes, sets, compositions, projections, new scripts, and so much more. Last year Electric Company spent over 43% of our budget on artist and production fees alone (over $220K!). We cannot mobilize this collective action without your support

We aim to inspire audiences with a renewed sense of possibility and to continually examine and expand our own definition of what live theatre can be. We work to reach across cultures, backgrounds, economics, and ideology to find the universal elements that connect all community members. We believe that trust, openness, authenticity and accountability create the right conditions for experimentation, artistic risk, and the pursuit of excellence.

100% of all donations go towards the art – if you are making a directed donation to a current campaign or to our general fund, you can be sure your support will hit the stage and support artists and creative works.

There are benefits to all donations, including special recognition and access, as well as tax receipts.
