Did you know that throughout the year, we present a range of work which the Harbourfront team have proactively sourced from across Canada and beyond, and are proudly presenting ourselves for the enjoyment and entertainment of our local communities?

You can identify these shows and events by looking out for the ‘Harbour Highlight’ logo, indicating that this is a piece of work we believe should be seen by the largest possible audience, and which we know you will love as much as we do!



Join us for our Harbour Highlights summer 2024 season, as detailed below. We look forward to welcoming you to Harbourfront Theatre soon!
