The World's End Theatre Company produces professional theatre reflecting the diversity of life on Fogo Island and Change Islands, Newfoundland and Labrador. Residents of the community participate in all aspects of the production, while the scenic islands serve as the backdrop for the stage. World's End Theatre will regularly produce original performances that showcase the history, culture and experiences of Fogo Island. These stories are told by the people who lived them.
This summer we are proud to present our 3rd annual theatre festival! [Click here to learn more.]
Since January 2008, World's End Theatre Company has held classes and workshops in many different genres of performing arts in order to educate and train the people of Fogo Island and Change Islands. In January, 2010, we created a Youth Theatre Program as part of the Academy which sees youth ages 14-19 take part in weekly classes and workshops. Look to this column in the future for more information on programs and workshops!
