Merlyn Productions is a live theatre production company that also operates the Winnipeg Theatre School in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The company presents a season of plays for both general & family audiences throughout each year, 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 as the successor to C.G. Productions (1997 - 1999).

The company is committed to staging "quality theatrical entertainment at an affordable ticket price", and has been producing full seasons of plays since moving into its current Albert Street studio in 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.

Join Our Company
