ARTIST'S STATEMENT
Tim Porter found the severe lack of Canadian musical theatre that was being produced appalling, and he was also frustrated with the large portions of Ontario that were starving for theatre production.

With a passion for producing, Tim set off to bring quality Canadian theatre to a wide range of regional viewing audiences. He is so excited about continuing to produce, and remounting some of Canada's best musicals for us all to enjoy.

It is his great hope that you will enjoy yourself at our productions, and return to play with us again and again! He would like to thank you all so much for your patronage. Enjoy the Shows!
