A new multi-purpose hall for Maison Théâtre and Cégep du Vieux-Montréal.
For 30 years now, the Maison Théâtre has staged Canadian and international plays for children and youths in a hall specially designed for young audiences. Still, in order to pursue its artistic and pedagogical mission of introducing young people to the theatre, the Maison needed to create more space and open a second hall.
Cégep du Vieux Montréal, next door, also had need of additional space so its multimedia students could have the optimal conditions, in a functional and inspiring environment, for their specialized classes.
The two institutions have agreed to share the use of a new facility which has been built on the Cégep campus. The college will use it as a venue for scholastic, socio-cultural and institutional activities. For Maison Théâtre, this space will allow it to offer unusual or experimental shows, as well as small-scale performances designed for very small children.
When education and the arts join forces, everyone comes out a winner!
