The stage is set for Meadowvale Theatre to receive a much-needed makeover. Starting May 21, the theatre will close temporarily for renovations. The renovations will help transform the theatre into a more modern, inspiring, and accessible space. The theatre is planned to reopen in summer 2022, after renovations have been completed.

In a press release, Mayor Bonnie Crombie stressed that the Meadowvale Theatre “is a vibrant hub that has been a part of Mississauga’s arts and culture scene for over 30 years”. That is why, adds Crombie, “I’m so glad that the theatre is getting updated and enhanced so that it can better serve theatregoers as a place to experience our vibrant performing arts community”.

The space modernization project fits in with the goals of the City’s Culture Master Plan to enhance and improve cultural spaces, grow, and support the creative industry and enable high-quality cultural experiences.

“We are excited that this renovation will help to expand access to the theatre and create more opportunities for performing arts in the city,” said Paul Damaso, Director, Arts and Culture. “This renovation also addresses the ageing state of the theatre, including improving accessibility, facility signage and energy efficiency.”

Meadowvale Theatre has been closed for over a year, due to the pandemic. This will be the first update to the theatre since it opened to the public in 1989. ■
