Crane Creations Theatre Company is a professional theatre start up based in Mississauga, Ontario.
We aim to advance the creation, evolution, promotion, and support for professional theatre in Mississauga by producing and presenting professional theatre, providing affordable and/or free rehearsal space to local non profits and artists, providing coaching, mentoring and professional development for artists. We understand theatre as a place for dialogue and forum for reflection and discussion on the world we live in. We are convinced theatre has a language of its own, capable of bringing people from various cultural, linguistic, and ideological backgrounds together in an empathetic and community forming experience.
What we offer:
- Summer Ensemble
Paid work for artists open to anyone aged 18 – 30. Every summer we hire 13 emerging artists (actors, directors, designers, stage managers, producer). Priority is given to residents of the Region of Peel, and members of Equity seeking groups. Please visit Summer Ensemble section of our website to learn more.
- Puppet Festival
Every March we host Bridges Festival – an international festival of puppetry and animation. On locations all over Mississauga we present puppet shows for children and/or adults, workshops, exhibitions, and short animated films.
- Rehearsal space
We operate a small, light filled, air conditioned rehearsal space located in Clarkson, very close to GO station with ample parking.
- Monthly play reading club
Every 3rd Thursday of the month we read a play together, out load, and then discuss the ideas in the play. Check out the plays we read already, and when you can jin us for the next Play Date.
Artistically, we take pride in taking time in developing projects over a longer period of time with specific outcomes in mind. We are currently working on a few projects, and we are always happy to have people sit in rehearsals and observe our process.
We are very passionate about creating fair, inclusive, paid opportunities for artists. We welcome members of LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and indigenous community, and we are proud to have strong women leading our organization.
Lastly, we are Mississauga based, globally curious. We are curious about artists from around the world; we are committed to international collaboration, and growing the recognition of Mississauga and its artists nationally and internationally.
