A pop-up exhibit in the lobby of The Elgin Theatre, 189 Yonge St, Toronto, M5B 1M.

11am to 3pm, Wednesdays to Saturdays
Throughout July & August 2017

This free pop-up exhibit offered the rare chance to see costumes and other theatre wonders up close.

Using objects from the museum’s collections, and on loan from Opera Atelier, the Stratford Festival Archives and from private collections of Canadian theatre designers, you get a sneak peek into the creative processes of the artists and production staff working as a team to bring theatre to life.

This pop-up exhibit also provided a small taste for what you might discover in a permanent theatre museum.
