Employer Profile

About the Company:

The Coal Mine Theatre is a small independent theatre company based in Toronto’s east end, on the Danforth. Annually, we produce a season of four shows in our small black box theatre (80 seats), all of which are Toronto premiers of challenging and award winning scripts from around the world. The Coal Mine is inspired by the intimacy and excitement of the Off-Off-Broadway experience:  well known names routinely share the stage (and backstage) with up-and-comers in what has been a thrilling mix, garnering numerous Dora and Toronto Critics’ awards every season. All of our artistic staff works part time, with supplemental contracts on a per-show basis.
