CONTACT THEATRE is a dynamic new theatre company that takes a modern approach to Broadway’s most risqué musicals. The Montreal theatre scene is about to be stormed with fresh and provocative themes that rarely make it to stage.
Contact Theatre will produce shows that grapple with heavy moral issues and question the status quo. The stage is designed to showcase diverse voices and talent from the community. All audiences will be welcomed to witness cutting edge productions spearheaded by two young artists with a unique vision.
Ally Brumer and Debora Friedmann are the co-founders of Contact Theatre. The pair met four years ago during a university production of RENT with AUTS, inspiring the company’s title. Brumer's keen eye for theatrical detail and Friedmann 's innovative artistic vision brought the duo back together to realize new projects that push creative boundaries and challenge typical theatrical norms. Following a hugely successful partnership working on The Addams Family Musical with WISTA in 2018, which was recently nominated for a Montreal English Theatre Award, the two couldn't wait to take the Montreal musical theatre scene by storm.
Contact's debut production, Bonnie & Clyde the musical, saw huge success at the MainLine theatre in April 2019. The production played for five sold out runs and received rave reviews from critics and audience members alike.
Contact Theatre aims to produce shows that are accessible to everyone and attractive to new audiences. For more information about accessibility and upcoming events please get in touch at contacttheatreMTL@gmail.com.
