Q: What do William Shatner and Hume Cronyn have in common?
A: Both alumni performed for the first time on the stage of Moyse Hall Theatre.
At the very heart of McGill University, nestled in the Arts Building, is Moyse Hall, a 306-seat traditional proscenium stage theatre. Once named a historical site by the Montreal Historical Society, Moyse Hall is indeed a theatre with a cherished past.
Moyse Hall is both a lecture hall and rental facility, and sees students from the English department’s Drama and Theatre program sharing the space with student productions and local theatre companies throughout the year. Over 320 days of the year, to be precise—and the wear and tear is beginning to show. Like most theatres, Moyse Hall runs on a modest operating budget, and the last renovations were done almost twenty years ago.
This is why the Faculty of Arts launched an exciting campaign to help support the refurbishment of the theatre, ensuring this beautiful space continues to be used and enjoyed for generations to come.
