About Hart House Theatre
Open 365 days a year, the Hart House facilities include a range of impressive rooms for study, dining, recreation and socializing, a modern athletics and aquatics facility, a satellite farm location, the acclaimed Justina M. Barnicke Art Gallery, a dynamic theatre, complete wedding, meeting and event services as well as the top-rated Gallery Grill restaurant all housed within a stunning, neo-Gothic building. Commissioned in 1911 by Vincent Massey, Hart House was completed in 1919 and gifted to the University of Toronto as a gathering place for students. Hart House is built around a tranquil, green quadrangle—a beloved setting for elegant weddings and popular outdoor events. The quadrangle connects to the Great Hall, a high-arched gathering place that has served as the ceremonial centre of the University of Toronto for close to a century. Hart House Theatre is the focal point for the performing arts at the University of Toronto. Over a thousand students participate each year in extracurricular drama, dance and music performances. Hart House Theatre also mounts a full season of production featuring both student and professional actors.
