The Manitoba theatre centre is a prairie gem. We saw “A Doll’s House Part 2” this evening and I was reminded of just how stunning the building is. The lobby waterfall, quaint bar, and peaceful surroundings are all wonderful. I’ve sat in the loges, the...More

This quaint little theater is always serving up edgy plays. You might not always agree with the attitude or direction that the play takes you but it is always a challenge. Every seat is a good seat as all seats are close to the stage....More
