Morpheus Annual General Meeting Sept 12 at 7:00pm!

Morpheus Theatre is thrilled to announce the annual hosting of our completely obligatory, government mandated (via the Societies Act and our Bylaws) Annual General Meeting!


The AGM (for short) will be held Monday September 12, 7:00pm at the Morpheus Rehearsal Centre

3512 – 5th Avenue NW

Lower Level of the Parkdale Community Centre


We invite all interested parties, volunteers, artists, patrons, and curious onlookers to join us for this enthralling meeting where we summarize the activities of the past year (in 500 words or less), present the accounting of the financials, and elect the board of directors to another one year sentence.


Admission to all this comes at the unbelievably low price of only one Loonie.  (That is not a comment on anyone in particular.)


We look forward to seeing you there!
