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 acting classes for children, teens and adults in Spring, Autumn and Winter.

Company History & Mission

Merlyn Productions is the successor to C.G. Productions, which staged plays under Co-Artistic Directors John Chase and Christopher Gray from 1997 until 1999.

When Mr Gray departed Winnipeg to pursue other avenues in Ottawa, Merlyn Productions was born. Under Artistic Director John Chase, the company remains committed to its mission of staging "quality theatrical entertainment at an affordable ticket price".

The Winnipeg Theatre School was formed within the company in 2011. With the motto that "some companies use professionals – we create them", its acting instructors came from Fantasy Theatre for Children and The Theatre School, to continue in FTC's 30-year tradition of quality training for all ages.
