Over 10,000 Montrealers have attended classes at The Children’s Theatre since the school was founded in 1933 by Montreal legends Dorothy Davis and Violet Walters.
Many people said a drama school founded in the midst of the Great Depression, by two women no less, would not survive. However, the ladies’ passion and commitment to children and the theatre turned their school into a Montreal institution that is still going strong to this day. Many of the students have gone on to professional careers in motion pictures and on television and the stage including William Shatner, Ben Mulroney and Tony-award winning actor Richard Easton. Another of our notable alumni includes Cote St Luc city Mayor and director of the Cote St Luc Dramatic Society, Mitchell Brownstein. Others have pursued careers behind the scenes in production or outside of the arts. What can be said for all students is that The Children’s Theatre offers a rewarding and enriching experience.
