Geordie is a not-for-profit company and is Quebec’s leading English-language theatre for young audiences that entertains, provokes thought, and fires up the imagination since 1980. We celebrate the art of theatre and its impact by working with emerging and established professional artists from various disciplines and cultural backgrounds to create works that are relevant and enchanting; inspiring dialogue between communities, children and parents as well as teachers and students of all ages. We continue to build relationships with and extend our audience through inclusive and accessible practices in Montreal, as well as remote communities in Quebec and abroad.

Geordie’s landmark activity, our 2Play Tour, consists of two professional productions, for elementary and high school students, that are toured to young people throughout Eastern Canada. Our 2Play Tour introduces unique, diverse, and engaging stories that speak to the current realities of young people from all backgrounds. We build bridges between young people and their communities, reaching over 40,000 students annually. During the seven months of the tour, our troupe covers more than 35,000 km by van, boat, and small plane to stage over 200 performances in Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick, visiting schools, libraries and community centers.

Our ultimate goal is to provide access to culture to as many children and teens as we can.

Geordie Theatre is located on the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki, Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these communities and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters – caring for it and calling it home. We are honoured and privileged to share stories on this land.

We wish to also acknowledge that we are grateful to those seeking sustainable solutions to our global climate crisis, so that we may continue to inspire and challenge our audiences near and far.
