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
