Since 1993, the Toronto Centre for the Arts has been greeting thousands of visitors, patrons, guests and customers through its main entrance.
Whether it was to see the latest Broadway sensation, an intimate performance, cabaret or art show or to experience the power of an 80 piece orchestra with a full choir, the TCA thanks you for your continued patronage and support over the years.
The facility began and remains as unique and diverse as the Toronto community itself, a testament to the virtues of harmony, vitality and celebration, with a spirit that embraces change and tradition equally.
Located in the heart of Metropolitan Toronto, no other entertainment and arts facility is better positioned than the Toronto Centre for the Arts. Easily accessible by major highways, arteries as well as the public transit system. Equidistant between two major TTC Stations (Sheppard Station and North York Centre Station), the center boasts ample parking: surface and underground lots, and convenient special needs parking at the main entrance.
Perhaps you’ve been here before? The Tony Award winning musicals ‘Show Boat’, ‘Ragtime’ and ‘Fosse’ all had their world premieres at the TCA before heading to Broadway. Maybe you saw Diahann Carroll in the magnificent ‘Sunset Boulevard’? or the legendary Christopher Plummer in ‘Barrymore’?
The Toronto Centre for the Arts has three magnificent and unique stages, which have each hosted a pageant of world-class productions and welcomed legendary performers.
Did you know that Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Yo Yo Ma, Ravi Shankar, Wynton Marsalis, David Brubeck, Rita MacNeil and the Miners of the Deep, Art Garfunkel, John Williams, Kathleen Battle, Tito Puente, Jackie Mason, Leontyne Price, Annie Lennox, Diana Krall, Connie Francis, Paul Anka and Mandy Patinkin have all played here?
The Toronto Centre for the Arts has welcomed countless orchestras, including annual series by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Toronto and Tafelmusik. It is also home to resident theatrical producer Encore Entertainment, producer of over forty community theatre productions and concerts in the past decade including 'Same Time, Next Year', 'Fiddler on the Roof', 'Guys and Dolls' and 'Chess - In Concert'.
The TCA welcomed Dancap Productions in 2008 to bring professional live theatre to the Main Stage including the touring production of Cameron Mackintosh’s ‘My Fair Lady’ and the Canadian production of the Tony Award winning Broadway phenomenon ‘Jersey Boys’.
To those of you returning to the TCA, we thank you for your continued patronage. To those of you coming to visit us for the first time, we welcome you and hope your experience is both entertaining and magnificent.
Welcome to your Centre!
