About Stage 88

Stage 88, born of the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts, is a theatrical performance company that entertains while fostering and enhancing cultural experiences by providing professional calibre productions.


Beginning with the Chicago Village in the 2006 Brantford International Villages Festival, Stage 88 has mounted at least one production each year. From 2006 until 2012 these shows were all performed at the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts. In 2013 a group of those who had been involved in several of these shows formed a Board of Directors for the company with the goal of expanding both the number and the variety of Stage 88 shows. The 2013-2014 season consisted of three shows of varying styles: The Whores at the Brantford Arts Block, Calendar Girls at the Sanderson Centre, and Love, Sex and the IRS, a co-production with Paris Performers’ Theatre at their Paris Fairground venue. The 2014-2015 season included August: Osage County at the Sanderson Centre, Love Letters at the Brantford Arts Block and Love, Loss and What I Wore in the Steve and Helen Kun Performance Theatre at Laurier Brant. The 2015-2016 season consisted of Harvest at the Gord Paynter Theatre and On Golden Pond at the Sanderson Centre.
