Welcome to The Toronto Theatre Database
The Toronto Theatre Database is a new online project, dedicated to the recording and preservation of the production histories and performance dates of Toronto’s professional theatrical productions. It is a hub through which professionals and fans of the Toronto theatre community can explore Toronto’s theatre past, present and future.
Toronto produces hundreds of theatrical productions every year, and those shows are at risk of being forgotten as time passes. The Toronto Theatre Database catalogues and preserves Toronto’s rich theatre history, and as new shows are announced and staged, TTDb will document them. Though there are some online archives of Toronto productions, none are easily accessible to the public, or as complete as TTDb aims to be. Patrons can explore the work and background of the Toronto theatre community, and those who work in the community have a resource that details their roots and connections.

It may still be a bit chilly outside, but officially spring has come to Toronto, so we’re taking what we can get, despite some snow. There are so many shows happening in the city right now that we’re keeping very busy entering as many of the shows happening in the city as we can. Did you just see a show that isn’t on the site? Feel free to send us a copy of the program; you can either scan one or take a picture of the pages and send it to content @ttdb.ca!

Summer has finally come to the city, which means festival season here at the Toronto Theatre Database. We’re going to spent the next few months running around collecting programs and entering in the hundreds of shows that are part of Toronto’s theatre festival season. Between Luminato, Fringe, Summerworks, and all of the shows being put on as part of the Pan Am games this summer we’re going to be super busy.
If you have a show in any of those festivals (or if you have any show happening this summer), send us are program, and we’ll put it up on the site.
