Overview

Since 1993, the Toronto Centre for the Arts (TCA) has welcomed thousands of visitors, patrons, performers and artists through its grand main entrance. The TCA began and remains as unique and diverse as the Toronto community itself, a testament to the virtues of harmony, vitality and celebration, with a spirit that embraces innovation and tradition equally. Located in the heart of the GTA, no other entertainment and arts facility is better positioned than the Toronto Centre for the Arts. It is easily accessible by major highways, arteries as well as the public transit system. Equidistant between the Sheppard and North York Centre TTC stations, the Centre's surrounding area boasts ample on-street and underground parking, and convenient special needs parking near the theatre entrance.

A great venue without the challenges of going downtown and with a good range of Acts suited to one of three auditoriums. What's playing can be hit or miss. Best to go with known artists and plays.

ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
