Theatre Ball 2023

An evening in support of Canadian Stage 

At Evergreen Brickworks on May 30, 2023

Please join Canadian Stage on May 30th, 2023, for Theatre Ball '23 at Toronto's most iconic urban greenspace, Evergreen Brickworks. Canadian Stage's annual Theatre Ball is a not-to-be-missed event. 

Canadian Stage is one of the leading contemporary performing arts organizations in the country. Our programming reflects the dynamism and complexity of Canada and is a vital artistic force locally, nationally, and internationally through a collision of cultures and artistic disciplines. 

The Theatre Ball raises essential funds to support the development of new works by Canadian artists and to support the productions on our stages. 

Join us for Theatre Ball 2023! You will enjoy a magical evening featuring David Andrew Reid from Choir Boy, renowned actors Ben Carlson and Diane Flacks and the soulful musical stylings of singer-songwriter Clerel.

We invite you to take a leadership position among the Theatre Ball's guests by becoming a Sponsor, Table Host, Ticket Purchaser, or Event Donor. Do not miss this opportunity to support contemporary theatre while having an unforgettable time with your friends, peers, and colleagues.

The Creative City Builders Award

The Creative City Builders Award recognizes and celebrates Toronto leaders and companies who have meaningfully contributed to the creative spaces and communities in our vibrant city. On June 21, 2022, Canadian Stage presented its inaugural Creative City Builders award to Babak and Tooran Mortazavi of TAS for their work and commitment to promote caring and connected neighbourhoods. 

This year, it is our great honour to recognize the thoughtful and innovative leadership of Diamond Schmitt.

The arts play a foundational, underpinning role in the vitality of our neighbourhoods and urban spaces. More broadly, cutlure is one of the lynchpins of social sustainability in the contemporary city. 

Artists and arts organizations cannot do this alone - we need people, businesses, and governments to actively make space and create the conditions for creative cities.
