In addition to working with children in the community, Marquee also offers community theatre style performance opportunities for all ages depending on the selected productions within a season. Our productions deliver high quality, family friendly entertainment, enriching the lives of those on stage, as well as those in the audience. 

We produce two adult cast productions within a subscription series with performances at the New Roads Performing Arts Centre (Formerly known as The Newmarket theatre) in November & April.

As part of Marquee’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, we make intentional choices to ensure we are a welcoming space for people of all ethnicities, economic status, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We encourage submissions from artists of all backgrounds, lived experiences, and gender identities. All roles are non-equity, non paying.


The people organizing this production are creatures of commitment, and they require yours.

The question is, are you ready to give it? It can seem exciting to get involved with a production, but when the days and weeks of effort pile up, you may sometimes wonder where your initial excitement came from.

Participation in any production is a serious commitment.

If you have other obligations in your life – a job, sports teams, special family needs – you must be 100% certain that those legitimate concerns leave you with enough time and energy to be involved in a show. 

There is no disgrace in giving those things priority and leaving this production to other people. The only shame would be if you agreed to take part in a show, only to then miss rehearsals and drop out along the way. That would weaken the efforts of the whole team. So know your own limits, and only say “yes” to this project if you really mean it.

Can you have fun working on a musical? Heck yes! You will probably have a blast doing it. But it’s not going to be the kind of fun you have lazing around under a tree on a hot afternoon. It is going to be more like the feeling of scoring a top grade after studying like crazy, or winning a competition you’ve spent months preparing for.
