About the Theatre
The Gas Station Theatre is a 232 seat rental venue in the heart of Osborne Village in Winnipeg. It features a large end-stage and is well equipped with state-of-the art lighting and sound equipment. The auditorium features comfortable seats and the best sight-lines to the stage in the business!
We are the home to professional theatre and dance companies as well as community based organizations. We have hosted musical evenings, fashion shows, lectures, film and video presentations, corporate events, and even weddings!
The back stage area has two properly equipped dressing rooms and two levels of storage, with access from the lobby, as well as the stage.
The lobby features huge south facing picture windows which provide a panoramic view of the area. Audience facilities include a cash-only Box Office and a licensed Bar which extends into the Courtyard in the summer months. The Lobby is also home to our Gallery, which features the work of emerging, as well as established Manitoba Artists.
The Auditorium is wheelchair accessible.
We acknowledge we are gathered on Treaty 1 Territory, the home and traditional lands of Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), and Dakota peoples, and in the National Homeland of the Red River Métis. We also acknowledge that Manitoba is located on the Treaty Territories and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk Nations.
We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.
We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.
Acknowledging this truth is important to the Gas Station Arts Centre, yet we acknowledge that it is only a small part of cultivating and protecting strong relationships with Indigenous communities. We continue to consult and work with all Indigenous people of Canada to learn, grow, and do better as a community gathering site, and as an incubator for the Arts.
