Elmira Theatre Company, as a vibrant community group, exists to promote diverse theatrical opportunities through a commitment to skills development and artistic excellence.


Elmira Theatre Company began in 1981 and since that time has become well known in local theatre circles for its quality productions, especially its comedies. Elmira is located in south-central Ontario and members come from all over the Waterloo Region and nearby towns and cities. New members are always welcome, regardless of ability.


The Elmira Theatre Company is a member of the Western Ontario Drama League (WODL), a body of over twenty community theatre groups encompassing an area from the Bruce Peninsula, south to Lake Erie and west to Sarnia. Each year WODL sponsors a drama festival that is hosted by a different group each year during March break. Over the years Elmira has won numerous awards and been nominated for many more at these festivals. Our proudest moment was winning not only the WODL competition in 1993 but also going on to the next level, the Theatre Ontario competition, and winning that as well with the comedy, Opening Night.


Elmira Theatre Company currently produces four shows a year, including a dinner theatre format production in Nov/Dec, which regularly plays to a sold-out audience.
