It was added to in the back to make up the stage and seating area and hosts numerous amateur plays throughout the year.

We are so fortunate in Thunder Bay. Magnus theatre gives lovers of live theatre a choice of productions each season. We have been entertained by comedy, drama and musicals. My husband and I attend with friends, impressed by the quality of acting, musical arranging and the stage settings. The intimacy of the theatre is a great asset to each production.... More

Great from beginning to end. A lot of good talent up on that stage. I don't know how they keep up the energy. Recommended it to everyone we met.

Just can't get excited about their safe, repetative line up... Tired actors doing the same set list year after year... how look another 2nd rate Norm Foster romantic comedy... or the singing post-mistress... painful... at its best with a travelling show, imported director and artistic manager...

Every time I go, I am so impressed with the shows - how everyone who is involved with the theatre mingles with the guests...the place co-creates a fabulous experience for each patron. Will always return again and again.
