Merlyn Productions Theatre Company

Merlyn Productions Logo Winnipeg Theatre School Logo

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

We present a full season of stage plays at the Ellice Theatre and other local venues each year, and offer Autumn & Winter 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, which staged plays from 1997 to 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 company in 2011. With the motto that "some companies use professionals – we create them", its 30-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

Merlyn Productions has a volunteer cast and staff that dedicate time for the love of their art form, and are committed to fostering live theatre in Winnipeg for performers and patrons alike.
