    The exiting of the Georgian College Theatre lease was a recommendation submitted to Council in response to the theatre space becoming unsafe for use and requiring significant investment in a fiscally challenging year, coupled with ongoing uncertainty created by the COVID-related gathering restrictions. It’s believed that this decision will allow all parties to refocus energy and resources in support of the need for a proper theatre that will be built with future needs embedded in its design.

    Staff are committed to working with the arts and culture community in the interim to leverage existing spaces and facilities to provide performance space. In response to Council direction regarding the 2021 budget and the future of the Fisher Project, staff have begun outreach regarding options that might be available to help support user groups. Interim solutions will be developed and full engagement with artistic and cultural groups will take place.

    Georgian Theatre has been an integral part of the Cultural heritage and experience in Barrie. It provides community members of all ages to collaborate and participate in a wide variety of art experiences; dance, music (vocal, instrumental), art, etc. It supports local businesses which depend on clients passionate about the arts. Georgian theatre also connects our community with students from the College. I'm sure solutions exist to keep this fabulous venue open for years to come. Our family enjoyed many years on stage and in the audience. This experience has made a positive and lasting difference in our lives.We urge you to support Georgian College's historical legacy which enriches the lives of families. Events at Georgian have created beautiful memories for our family, that can be cherished for years to come.
