We are delighted to present our annual reading of A Christmas Carol with a cast that includes some of our favourite people from the community as well as local professional performers. Our holiday tradition is presented at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Collingwood, and it’s always a wonderful event to get you in the spirit of the season.

Did you know that the story “A Christmas Carol” was written in 1843. Charles Dickens was so thrilled with the idea that he wrote it in under six weeks! The first reading of it took three hours.

Don’t worry, our version is just 90 minutes!

Community Partnerships Seek to Elevate Arts & Culture!

Theatre Collingwood is a leading voice in a grassroots community initiative that is working with the Town of Collingwood to create a world class arts, culture and entertainment centre in South Georgian Bay. Please visit to register your support and stay up to date on our progress.

In January 2021, The Town of Collingwood engaged Nordicity and Giaimo Architects to undertake a Feasibility Study for an Arts and Culture Centre in Collingwood. This report represents the findings, options, and recommendations as to next steps based on the research, consultations and analysis conducted between January and August 2021. The purpose of the study was to:

  1. Evaluate the needs of the arts and cultural community in Collingwood.

  2. Determine if, and to what degree, there is demand for an arts and culture centre.

  3. Assess the feasibility of a new arts and culture centre in Collingwood.
