Hold on… every Ruff performance is Pay What You Can and the youth theatre program is completely free? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Well, it’s because of You.

We wouldn’t be where we are now without our generous sponsors and individual donors. In five short seasons we’ve entertained 15 000 Torontonians, we’ve hired 190 artists, and provided 50 high school students from all over the GTA with free theatre apprenticeships. And did you know nearly half of our audiences attend because our shows are Pay What You Can? Maybe that’s why the Toronto Star called us Toronto’s “most constantly engaging outdoor theatre company”. With your support, imagine how much further we could go…
