Canadian Players

House program magazine for scene

Founded as a national professional touring company for Canada by Tom Patterson and Douglas Campbell, the Canadian Players first toured in 1954 with a production of George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan, and for the next twelve years took a repertoire of mainly Shakespeare and Shaw across Canada and into the United States. The Canadian Players merged with Crest Theatre in 1966 to form the Crest Players Foundation, which eventually became Theatre Toronto.
