East Side Players is one of Toronto's longest-established community theatre groups. Formed in 1967, when East York Players and Leaside Players joined forces, we've been engaging audiences for over 50 years. Our twofold mission is to provide a community service: by presenting engaging, affordable theatre in a comfortable space and by offering individuals a chance to develop their interests by taking part in productions.
We are a non-profit group, but we maintain a high standard, having won numerous awards for best production, direction, acting and technical achievement. More than 250,000 theatre-goers have enjoyed our 200 shows which include comedies, dramas, mysteries, thrillers and even original musical revues. We perform at the recently renovated Papermill Theatre at Todmorden Mills in the heart of Toronto, where we have been Resident Theatre Company since 1972.
