Theatre Sheridan

Support new projects and the arts while giving students the chance to excel on stage. Our Friends of Theatre Sheridan (FOTS) are important partners in bringing new musical works from school to stage.

Donations from FOTS supporters are directly invested in Theatre Sheridan’s six annual productions. Our Technical Production for the Performing Arts Industry students craft outstanding sets, which include costumes, lighting, audio, and props, that set the scene for the performances of our aspiring music theatre students. Audiences have the opportunity to see the next generation of theatre stars at a choice of two theatres on Sheridan’s Oakville campus.

FOTS supporters also allow us to develop new projects such as the Canadian Music Theatre Project (CMTP). As Canada’s largest arts school, Sheridan is committed to the meaningful development of new works, and the CMTP gives our students the chance to work with some of the biggest talent in the industry.

Launched in 2011, CMTP is Canada’s first incubator for the development of new musicals by Canadian and international composers, lyricists and book-writers. The Globe and Mail called it the "most important new initiative" on the Canadian music theatre scene, and it’s creating a legacy.

Since its inception, CMTP has helped launch musicals that reflect our country’s stories and culture. That includes workshopping the award-winning Come From Away, which has earned a Tony Award and four Laurence Olivier Awards.
