Greystone Theatre

We present three to four plays a year on our Greystone Mainstage season, showcasing the work of our student actors and technicians, both onstage and behind the scenes. Whether classical or cutting-edge and contemporary, every season offers a diverse mix of plays chosen to challenge our students and to entrance our audiences: a matter that is as true today as it was in 1946, when Greystone Mainstage Productions premiered on campus at the U of S.

Welcome to Greystone Theatre

Greystone Theatre, one of the oldest theatres in the province, started in 1946 in the first drama department in Canada and the Commonwealth. Check out ticket information and upcoming performances.

It’s graduation day. Do you know where your soul is?

When Faustus reaches the end of his degree, he makes a deal with the devil and enrolls in a masterclass in magic. A radical reimagining of Christopher Marlowe’s 16th century tale of knowledge, power, and damnation. Who knew a night in hell could be so much fun?

Thousands of decisions to be made mixed with diverse personalities and often some big egos are what make up the final rehearsals before the magic of theatre is felt and a play opens. Playwright Anne Washburn took notes at rehearsals for years and has written a wry comedy that lets the audience in on the often bumpy journey.
