Our Mandate

Skeleton Key Theatre creates, produces, and presents original Canadian work that offers immersive theatrical experiences for audiences in collaboration with local and national presenters and community groups. Using collaborative creation and working in non-traditional spaces, Skeleton Key provides intergenerational audiences with engaging opportunities to examine the issues of our time. This is realized by giving established and emerging artists an environment to grow the seeds of ideas into full-fledged productions, supporting the voices of female-identifying and non-binary artists, and thinking outside the black box.

 

Our work is Innovative, Immersive, and Immediate.
