About us


WIT’s mandate is to promote professional independent theatre in Winnipeg and connect with you: our audience! 


We welcome all independent theatre companies operating in Winnipeg inclusive of race, ethnicity, ancestry, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic strata or religious beliefs.


WIT acknowledges that the land upon which we gather and create theatre is Treaty 1 Territory. It is the traditional lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. The name Winnipeg is derived from the Cree name for Lake Winnipeg, win-nipi, meaning “murky water”. We acknowledge our water is sourced from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation.

WIT exists to share resources, develop marketing synergies, and foster support for independent theatre with the goal of strengthening individual and collective profiling and patronage. A representative of each member company serves as a director of WIT on a voluntary basis.

WIT has two membership categories: Full Membership (for established professional companies) and Associate Membership (for emerging companies). Go here for more information on our membership categories.
