Merlyn Productions Logo Winnipeg Theatre School Logo

Merlyn Productions is a live theatre company that carries a legacy of classic children's theatre in Manitoba, and also operates the Winnipeg Theatre School.

Dedicated to creating "the magic of live theatre for all ages", the company presents a season of plays for general & family audiences, while the school offers performance-oriented acting classes for children, teens, and adults.

Company History & Mission

Merlyn Productions was founded by Artistic Director John Chase, who began producing local theatre in 1997. The company now celebrates ten seasons of staging plays from its Albert Street studios (since 2008)!

The Winnipeg Theatre School became part of the organisation in 2011. With the motto that "some companies use professionals — we create them", its 35-year-old brand came from Fantasy Theatre for Children and The Theatre School, to continue in FTC's tradition of quality training for all ages.
