Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society
We encourage and welcome the participation of members of the community in the activities of the Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society — both on stage and in production. Do come out and join us!
We are convinced you’ll find the experience of seeing a play come to life rehearsal, the hustle and bustle of pre-production and the excitement of opening night, both enjoyable and enlightening! The sucessful production of a play or musical requires a wealth of resources and talents and we know that there’s an area in which you’ll be able to make a worthwhile contribution.
Officially organized in September of 1961, the Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society was chartered in the Province of Ontario in 1963 as a non profit, community theatre organization. Initial productions were presented Niagara Falls Collegiate Vocational Institute auditorium.
Our occupancy of the Walnut Street Firehall began in 1967, with the space used as a rehearsal hall and as a workshop space for one-act plays. In 1975, the building became the official home of the Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society, and was formally named the Firehall.
While continuing to present productions, the company also worked to convert the space into a proper theatrical facility. Formal renovations, including an addition that housed a box office, cloalcoom, and lounge area, were undertaken with the provision of funding at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. The Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society supplied further labour and materials to complete the renovations. The renovated Firehall Theatre and its addition were officially opened in 1982.
The majority of our operating revenues are generated through ticket sales, sponsorships. Donations go towards new equipment and repairs. All donations are gratefully received, and the Niagara Falls Music Theatre Society thanks you for your continued support. Charitable Registration number 0505602-22
