“Theatre New Brunswick is now a company that stands on four philosophical pillars that make us relevant provincially and nationally. They are: artistic excellence, regional representation, diversity, and equity.”

Thomas Morgan Jones | Artistic Director | 2015-2018

"I grew up in Bathurst, NB. There were two events that changed the trajectory of my life. The first was my grade 7 English teacher, Veronica Stever. She introduced our class to theatre through play readings, story writing, skits and improve. This lit a spark in me. The second was in 1975. I went to see my first professional theatre show. It was Theatre New Brunswick’s Death of a Salesman. As I watched in awe the amazing performances on the TNB stage, I whispered, 'This is what I will do for the rest of my life'."

Wally MacKinnon | Actor

“I was lucky. I inherited an incredible touring circuit (originally developed by Walter Learning), a very well administered theatre organized by Malcolm Black (who had kept it in the black), and excellent General Manager in Nancy Coy, and a school touring company managed by Brenda Robison.”

Janet Amos | Artistic Director | 1984-1988

"Coming from a generation that was raised on TNB, I was not only inspired by the stories that TNB brought to life, but actively encouraged as a young person to be involved. I bought into the promise that TNB made. It wasn’t just about theatre; it said something great and positive to me about New Brunswick."

Caleb Marshall | Artistic Director | 2009-2014
