Past Plays

Kanata Theatre has put on over 180 full productions, in addition to numerous plays for children and evenings of one-act plays. As the list shows, our productions range from hilarious British farces to serious dramas.

Play selection is accomplished by a play-reading committee that spends countless hours reviewing, reading and voting on plays, which are selected on their appeal, variety, and the ability of Kanata Theatre to stage them
