#14 of 162 in Nightlife in Montreal
The Centaur Theatre Company is a theatre company based in Montreal, Quebec. It was founded in 1969 by The Centaur Foundation for the Performing Arts with Maurice Podbrey as the Artistic and Executive Director, and Herb Auerbach as Chairman of the Board.


Podbrey retired from the company in 1997, and was succeeded by Gordon McCall. From 2007 to 2017 Roy Surette was the company's third Artistic and Executive Director. In 2017 Eda Holmes was appointed the forth and current Artistic and Executive Director.


The Centaur is the city's main English-language only theatre company.


From 1969 to 1973 the company leased the partially renovated auditorium in the historic building. In 1974 the Centaur purchased the building and spent $1.3 million in renovations under the design of architect Victor Prus.


The building reopened in 1975 with an additional auditorium. The original black box theatre was renamed "C1", and seats approximately 245 people. The newer venue was named "C2" and is a more traditional proscenium stage, seating approximately 425.
