About Theatre Wakefield
Outstanding Live Entertainment since 2002!
Since 2002 Theatre Wakefield has developed arts and culture in the Lower Gatineau Valley.
Focusing on community theatre and film, we produce main-stage performances, dramatic readings, heritage animation projects, Wakefield Doc Fest, Ta Da! Festival, various hosted productions and a variety of training workshops.
Our organization plays a key role in Wakefield’s lively culture of volunteerism, with a pool of volunteers and members who are the heart of Theatre Wakefield. Volunteers are involved in all aspects of operations and activities, from board management to Theatre Wakefield productions.
We are such a thriving community organization and it is all because of these enormous contributions of presence, labour and creativity year after year.
In 2018 alone, we saw the participation and gifts of almost 200 members and volunteers. We are dedicated to creating a truly rewarding and rich volunteer experience for everyone and are eager to engage with persons interested in serving these important areas of our sustainability.
If theatre is indeed a mirror we hold up to our world, then Theatre Wakefield is truly a reflection of the passion and dedication of our community. Thank you all so very much.
Theatre Wakefield is an incorporated not-for-profit community organization.
Theatre Wakefield initiates, promotes, and supports the creation of community-based arts and culture in La Pêche, the Outaouais, across Québec, and internationally.
Theatre Wakefield’s vision is to support the creative economy of La Pêche and its community members (including youth and seniors) through theatre, film, storytelling, heritage animation, community fundraising, social activism, learning and training, and writing to produce original works and performances.
