About the Theatre
The Sault Ste. Marie Community Theatre Centre operates a multi-purpose theatre with 897 seats, plus 10 wheelchair sites. Constructed in 1988, the Theatre is part of the White Pines Collegiate and Vocational School. This climate controlled performing space is equipped with comfortable seating and state of the art lighting and sound that is expertly operated by a full time technical director and staff. Our unique 25-year partnership with the Algoma District School Board has resulted in the Theatre being the District’s premier performing space, as well as a unique education resource. In 2017, the Sault CTC opened the Studio Theatre, located behind the main stage. With separate entrance, the Studio Theatre sets up to 125 people. depending on intended use. It is well-equipped with lighting, sound and projection making it ideal for intimate performances, readings, and screenings. The Community Theatre Centre is located on a major artery in the east end of the city, accessible by public transportation and with large, well-kept and well-lit parking areas.
