Royal MTC is the only regional theatre in the country to produce a Fringe Festival. Our festival is North America’s second-largest Fringe, presenting live theatre in an informal, accessible and inexpensive environment. Every July, we welcome more than 170 companies from around the world to present innovative and independent theatre to appreciative audiences.

As a not-for-profit theatre, we rely on revenue from fundraising events. Since 1990, members of the Manitoba Bar Association have volunteered thousands of billable hours for the Lawyers Play. In the process, these talented lawyers and judges have raised over $850,000 for Royal MTC programming.

The Black & White Ball is another not-to-be-missed event. Featuring an elegant evening of dining, dancing, live entertainment and a silent auction, the Ball is a highlight of our city's social calendar and a key fundraiser for the theatre.
