Magnus Theatre Announces Mainstage Lineup for Upcoming 50th Anniversary Season

Magnus Theatre is excited to announce a return to the stage, with a full season of Mainstage programming running from September 16, 2021 until May 14, 2022.  

The theatre will be celebrating its 50th anniversary during the upcoming season, having brought professional theatre to Northwestern Ontario in 1971. Magnus Theatre is the only fully professional theatre between Sudbury and Winnipeg. 

The season will kick off on September 16th with the world premiere of HOME: A BLUEGRASS CELEBRATION, a music revue conceived and written by Jo-Ann Waytowich, well known to local audiences for her iconic Ivanka character. Directed by Thom Currie with musical direction by Danny Johnson, this original play features bluegrass music and takes a hilarious and relatable look at a year in isolation from the point of view of three women at different stages of life. The production features an ensemble of Thunder Bay based actors and musicians, including Jo-Ann Waytowich, Danny Johnson, Fae Alexander, Susie Campbell, Martin Blanchet, Olivia Korkola, Robert Balabuck, and Dan Zadkovich.

The Collective Creation Project

What does reconciliation look like in Canada today? That’s the idea behind Stolen, Azhen – Magnus Theatre in Education’s most recent student-led Collective Creation Project.


Looking Back at Magnus is a video series that aims to remember and celebrate the people who have been significant in the history of the company. Artistic director Thom Currie hosts a video chat with guests who were there in the early days, from the grassroots beginning in the city’s east end to the ground-breaking move to Waverley Park.
