About Geordie and Our Mission
Geordie Productions aims to entertain, provoke thought, fire up the imagination and challenge audiences of all ages. We celebrate the art of theatre and its impact by working with emerging and established artists from various disciplines and cultural backgrounds to create theatre that is provocative, relevant and enchanting; inspiring dialogue between communities, children and parents as well as teachers and students of all ages. We are committed to giving new life to existing Canadian plays as well as developing and contributing new great works to the national canon. We look to constantly broaden our audience base by bringing productions to as many areas and communities as we can reach.
Geordie Productions is a professional theatre company that has been presenting live English theatre for young audiences since 1980. Pushing artistic boundaries with provocative and important stories, Geordie delivers more than 300 performances each season.
Geordie's annual seven month 2Play Tour (the longest in Canada) makes its way across Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick, visiting schools, libraries and community centres. Geordie annually visits such communities as the Eastern Townships, the Lower North Shore, the Gaspé, the Magdalen Islands, the Abitibi, the Outaouais and James Bay. Often, our shows are the only theatre these communities are exposed to.
Through Geordie's Mainstage Series, an annual season of plays for family audiences presented in downtown Montreal, the company continues to open up new worlds for the young and young at heart. Geordie offers exciting, insightful theatre that is sure to enchant, educate and entertain!
Geordie believes in fostering young voices from all backgrounds through the power of theatre. Through the popular Geordie Theatre School (GTS), children and teens have the opportunity to build a solid foundation in acting taught by exceptional professional artists where the fundamentals of Confidence, Creativity, and Craft are central to our teaching philosophy.
