Green Thumb Theatre

Founded in 1975, Green Thumb Theatre is a force within the field of theatre for young audiences, not only in British Columbia, but across the country and throughout the world. In our more than 40 year history, Green Thumb has performed for over 5 million people and has toured to every province and two territories in Canada, 36 US States, and 11 countries overseas. Committed to producing excellent material that is rewarding for artists and audiences alike, Green Thumb remains in high demand because we place youth engagement and artistic integrity on an even plane.

By offering young audiences the same caliber of work a traditional theatre audience would expect, Green Thumb provides a way for young people to reflect on the kinds of issues that they may be curious about or grappling with themselves, but don't feel comfortable broaching in a traditional classroom setting. Green Thumb believes that young Canadians face the same scope of issues, problems, concerns and interests that adults do; however, many young people are disempowered from effectively confronting difficult or complex situations as a result of societal, systemic, or cultural beliefs and discriminations. As Canadian society diversifies it is more important than ever that people respect each other and each other's differences.

Beyond the immediacy of producing the best work possible for the audience before us, Green Thumb is also invested in contributing to Canada's cultural landscape in a lasting way. We commission new plays with the intent that they will have a life beyond the gymnasium floor stage, working with both emerging writers as well as established playwrights like Joan McLeod, Morris Panych, and George F. Walker, all of whom have a Governor General's Award to their name, and have received wide critical acclaim throughout their careers. We also offer opportunities and mentorship to emerging actors, designers, and arts administrators. We believe that to ensure continuing enthusiasm and support for the arts tomorrow, we must invest in the rising talent of today.
