Co-founders Tom Patterson and Douglas Campbell came together to form Canadian Players in Stratford Ontario in 1954 as a national professional touring company in Canada. The Canadian players first toured with George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan and performed works mainly written by Shaw and Shakespeare for the following twelve years.
