Overview

The Young Centre for the Performing Arts was envisioned by George Brown College and Soulpepper Theatre Company to be a home to Toronto's arts community and a destination for all theatre lovers. Anchored by the presence of Soulpepper's year-round repertory season and George Brown College's Theatre School, the Young Centre provides a home for both the leading artists of today, as well as the arts leaders of tomorrow. When you step through the doors of the Young Centre you can feel a difference. The space is alive with discussion and debate. There is a kinetic energy fueled by the passion of performers, students, and audiences. There is a musical hum to designers, choreographers, directors and musicians collaborating. There is a rhythm set by the theatre, dance, music and poetry that fills each of the spaces. This is the environment in which we get to work, play, create and share. And you belong here.

Being in the Distillery District, a visit to the Young Centre can be an excursion of art galleries and excellent food. Then a play! Also the Centre has a wonderful Cafe with good food and libation.

In 20 years of regular theatre-going in Toronto, Soulpepper has been our only consistently excellent experience. There's a great variety; from classics to translations, adaptations and restated fringe plays. Every production has been outstanding and manages to connect with the audience in an authentic, intelligent,...More

I am a relatively new attendee of this theatre. Parking is a pain and expensive, more so than downtown which has $6 parking in most underground lots after 5 or 6PM. The theatre is small and comfortable, which for me is a biggy. There is...More

Theatre seats, at least for the production I saw, were islands of isolation, separate from everyone else, we were unable to sit with our family, even though the tickets were bought as a family outing. Men's washroom is blocked by a huge pillar.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
