After 40 years, Solar Stage has a new home to be proud of: the Artscape Wychwood Barns at Christie and St Clair.
The Wychwood Barns is a stunning hard-conversion of an old TTC transit barn, thoughtfully developed by Artscape into a thriving community hub with a gallery, multiple artists' studios, open event space, a greenhouse and garden, a weekly farmers’ market, and a very popular playground including sandboxes and a splash pad! Coming to the Wychwood Theatre will be so much more fun in our new space, a destination for the whole family for the day.
It's also a classy and contemporary space to hold all sorts of events, workshops, and screenings, with a range of lighting options and technical elements available, all in a hip, central, TTC-accessible and wheelchair-accessible location.
The Solar Stage management envisions a training program for actors, professionally taught classes including stage combat, puppetry, intimacy, and acting for young audiences, as well as expanded offerings in evening programming in theatre, music, cabaret and more. Stay tuned for some very exciting announcements this year!
