About TfT and its Audience

Théâtre français de Toronto (TfT) was founded in 1967 and is the only professional French-language theatre company in southern Ontario offering a full season of diverse productions ranging from new Canadian and international works to the classics. TfT sells about 9,500 tickets every season. All shows are presented at Berkeley Street Theatre, 26 Berkeley Street (Berkeley & Front).

Since its creation, TfT has been a meeting point for all francophones and francophiles living in the GTA and in southern Ontario, from as far away as Kingston, the Niagara Region, Barrie and London. Our base includes not only Franco-Ontarians, but also European and Quebecois people as well as francophones from Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean. French is a second language for about a quarter of our audience. TfT targets a part of its season towards young audiences with “Volet Nouvelles Générations” (New Generation Program). Nearly 4,000 students from francophone and immersion schools attended TfT’s school matinees in 2013-2014 and TfT has strived to reach out to youth and new audiences.

Since April 2005, TfT has offered performances with English SURTITLES. This initiative is now a major attraction and enables TfT to reach new audiences, increasing the attendance rate by about 20%.
