Located inside White Pines Collegiate, the Sault Community Theatre Centre remains one of the city’s finest places to hold concerts, plays and cultural events, from large Grammy winning artists concerts to smaller local shows, for all ages to enjoy.
The organization was formed in 1988, sharing the facility with White Pines and other Algoma District School Board students long after ‘the Pines’ was built in the early 1970s.
The theatre itself features over 900 comfortable seats (including spaces reserved for wheelchairs), a large stage with an impressive sound and lighting system.
Tickets for events are available digitally or in person at the Sault Community Theatre Centre box office in Station Mall.
Over the years, the centre has diversified its events as the population of the Sault has itself diversified, presenting cultural events such as India Night and Festival of India.
“Part of our mission is art education and we couldn’t be happier than to be the home for these unique, thought provoking events,” theatre officials say.
The Sault Community Theatre Centre is run by a board of people from various groups and industries, and invites those interested in becoming board members to step forward.
As with so many organizations, the centre’s work could not be done without volunteers, a theatre usher promoted as one of the most enjoyable volunteer tasks.
“Join the front line of theatre and help our patrons find their way to their seats, and get a chance to be there for our amazing shows for free. What’s more amazing than being able to say ‘I was there!’ when something legendary happens,” theatre officials say.
Donations to the Sault Community Theatre Centre are always welcome and are tax deductible.
The centre may be contacted at 705-945-7299, through its website or by email its officials inviting the arts community to let them do the professional promotion of an event, handle ticket sales and ensuring an event’s technical needs are taken care of.
