About

ARCHIVES

As Canada's oldest English-language regional theatre, we have 60 years of history to celebrate. To allow the greatest access to our historical records, and to preserve them for generations to come, we have donated our records to the Archives of Manitoba. Please visit the Archives of Manitoba website for information on how to access the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre fonds.

RESEARCH GUIDES

We are offering 2 research guides to facilitate access to our large collection of records at the Archives of Manitoba.

Please download this PDF to view the Research Guide for Canadian, Regional, Manitoban and Indigenous Plays.

Please download this PDF to view the Research Guide for Female Playwrights.

These guides were made possible in part by the Government of Canada with the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Young Canada Works program.
