“O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful!” As You Like It - Shakespeare

Shakespeare may have written about love, but The Beatles made us sing about it! On Saturday, November 2, 2019, we invite you to join us at the Black & White Ball: IMAGINE. A world where The Beatles meet The Bard for an elegant evening of fine dining and dancing.

All the world may be a stage, but all you need is love at the Black & White Ball in support of Royal MTC.

Proceeds from the Black & White Ball help Royal MTC ensure vibrant theatre remains accessible to all Manitobans. The money raised supports the cost of the Mainstage and Warehouse productions, keeping ticket prices affordable. Proceeds raised also support our youth education and enrichment programs - Theatre for Young Audiences, the Backstage Pass, Teen Critic program, and scholarships to assists emerging Manitoban artists with their education. Additional Royal MTC programs include Wordplay – our play development program and the Regional Tour – touring professional theatre to over 24 communities in rural Manitoba and Northwest Ontario.
