Our Impact

The presence of the Black voice in the stories we see on stage is important now, more than ever.

It is truly an honour for us to play a leading role in bringing quality productions that speak to the Black experience to Montreal audiences, but we need your support to keep moving forward!

This year will be our milestone 50th Anniversary season! This is no small accomplishment. The support of patrons like you has allowed us to come as far as we have, and we have some big dreams ahead – we just need your help to get there! As a valued supporter, your benefits include receiving everything from tax receipts to invitations to our Opening Night performances and much, much more!

All donations, no matter how big or small, help to promote Black arts & culture in our city and across Canada. We hope that you will join us as one of our valued BTW supporters.

We would like to thank all our past supporters! Your donations have helped to solidify our place as one of the preeminent theatre companies in the country and Canada’s longest running Black theatre company. It is thanks to our patrons, like you, who believe in the importance of the work that we do.

Thank you, once again, for your kind contribution.

Thank You to our 2020 Donors!
January – December 2020

It is through the generous donations of our members that we are able to continue to thrive as the oldest Black theatre in Canada! We would like to give a special thank you to these wonderful supporters for contributing to Black Theatre Workshop!
