“The Storefront Theatre is a beacon for Toronto's indie theatre scene. Its model for collaboration and community building, alongside other vibrant independent companies, is transforming the city's theatre landscape one storefront at a time."
This former drugstore-turned-performance space in Bloorcourt Village, is home to the Red One Theatre Collective. The space has become a hub for original programming including world premieres, live game shows, one-act festivals, even a roller disco."
“If you give people a chance, they’ll fly,” says Benjamin Blais, the founder and artistic director of Storefront. “There’s a fierce hunger for art that brings along a sense of community right in your own front yard.. The cheerfully visionary Blais has a kind of Field of Dreams approach to indie theatre, firmly believing that “if you create it, they will come in droves” and so far he’s been right."
