OUR NORTH SHORE PROFESSIONAL THEATRE COMPANY
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR KIM SELODY
Presentation House Theatre (PHT) is the north shore’s professional theatre company, where ideas play and grow into quality performing arts for all ages. For nearly 40 years, friends, family, and strangers have gathered here to enjoy innovative programming and quality professional shows in this wonderfully intimate space.
PHT’s 2017–18 season touches on big issues with humour, pathos, imagination, marionettes, and even juggling! The performances will encompass a world of ideas—from the land of Wild Things to the heart of Mexico City, ancient traditions to new immigrants, conformity to breaking free—with themes that are universal and deeply personal.
“The mind at play is ageless, boundless,” says Artistic Director Kim Selody. “This is a place for generations and cultures to come together and play with ideas through theatre, music, and dance. It’s a great way to make friends and reach across generations, beliefs, and diverse cultures— to understand.”
And audiences can enjoy it all from brand new, comfortable seats installed in the summer of 2017, for a comfy new future in a well-loved historical home. “You are welcome anytime,” says Selody, “to come watch, listen, and play.”
It was an amazing show, stimulating all of the senses! You all did a fabulous job.
