Toronto, ON, September 22, 2021 - CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) and Mirvish Productions are proud to announce the signing of a new 10-year partnership agreement that includes naming rights to the CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre formerly known as the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto.
“Today’s announcement reinforces CAA’s commitment to live theatre in Toronto and brings the best theatre productions from all over the world, to over 56 million CAA and AAA members across North America,” says Jay Woo, President & CEO, CAA Club Group. “We are excited to be a part of the return of theatre in the city of Toronto.”
Mirvish Productions is delighted to join forces once again with CAA whose members have a shared passion for theatre. It will also help garner new audiences through a diverse offering of world class productions.
“My father would have been extremely honoured and delighted to share the spotlight on the new CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre with a company that embodies and shares his core principles of trust, honesty and good value,” says David Mirvish.
“The partnership brings together one of Canada’s largest membership associations and the country’s leading theatrical organization and solidifies CAA as a key partner. The 10-year commitment will also continue to weave CAA into the cultural fabric of Canada’s largest city and give its members access to some of the best live theatre in the country,” says Rhonda English, chief marketing officer, CAA Club Group.
The CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre will officially open to the public with the Canadian premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in May, 2022. This will be the largest production of a play in Canadian theatre history. It is appropriate that it launches this newest chapter in the venue’s 101-year history.
