The beginning of the 2021/22 season has seen many wonderful local talents on our stage, but as restrictions ease and the world starts to open up, we will be on the search again for short-term, reasonably priced accommodations for our out-of-town actors, designers, and theatre professionals.   

Magnus Theatre brings actors and theatre professionals from across Canada to work 

at Northwestern Ontario’s only professional theatre.  If you have an extra bedroom, basement suite or apartment that might be suitable for a responsible adult theatre professional to live in for 5-6 weeks, we’d love to hear from you!  We’ve had a wonderful community of homeowners who have provided housing for artists in years past and we would love to add you to that list! 

Accommodation providers are asked to provide a safe, clean, private place for performers to sleep and rest and have access to full washroom facilities and shared or private kitchen facilities. Laundry and other facilities are always appreciated. 

The majority of our out-of-town artists do not have their own vehicles, so we try to provide accommodation that is near the theatre or, at the very least, a short bus ride away. 

As many of our artists are still paying for their hometown accommodation while here, we encourage a (negotiable) rental rate of $85-$115 per week as renumeration for hosting.  Guest artists will make their own arrangements for payment with accommodation providers. 

Our Mainstage season runs from September until May with summer productions, school tours, and other productions at various times of the year.  For the 2021/22 Season we are looking for the following dates to house artists: 

Smarty Pants: May 5-21, 2022 


We will guarantee that our contracted artists are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 when they arrive in Thunder Bay.  If you are interested in providing guest accommodation or have any questions, please contact us through the box office at (807) 345-5552 or email at [email protected]
