Formed in 1983 by Artistic Co-Directors LeahCherniak and Martha Ross, in Toronto, ON, Theatre Columbus featured shows dedicated to clown techniques. As a clown company, it used these specific elements in addition to improvisation to comment on socially relevant issues at the time. This theatre comapny was known for creating original comedies and adapting classic plays such as Twelfth Night.
Theatre Columbus was part of the Group of Seven Theatres, which established a collective effort that worked to increase interest in small theatres and theatre productions in general. It is now known as the Common Boots Theatre and no longer features clown techniques on a regular basis.
In this collection there are performance files, scripts, reviews, audio-visual materials, posters, programs, and administrative files.
