A Century of Applause - Celebrating 100 Years

Sanderson Centre Stage

This season has been 100 years in the making. It is a daunting task to look at all that has been on our stage over the years and to find a way to celebrate that rich history. We’ve tried to meet the challenge and entertain you with selections in keeping with our three eras:

  • Vaudeville – The Temple Theatre - Brantford’s Supreme Playhouse
  • Film – The Capitol was Brantford’s premiere movie palace for nearly sixty years
  • Performance – The Sanderson Centre has been bringing the performing arts to our community for nearly a third of a century

To achieve this, we’re bringing you our biggest season yet and to help you be a part of it, we’re proud to announce a new member program featuring a Centennial Membership with great benefits. We’ll also have some centennial keepsakes available for purchase, improved ticket and guest services, and other enhancements to the audience experience for you to look forward to.

On behalf of all of us here at the Sanderson Centre, we can’t wait to welcome you to become a part of our centennial season.

Make sure you subscribe to our concert announcements so you are always in the know.

Hurry and grab your seats for what promises to be a memorable season!
