Sudbury Performance Group is Greater Sudbury’s newest performance arts company. Founded in 2017, SPG is a registered, not-for-profit, charitable organization that focuses on three main aspects of performance arts: comedy, music, and theatre.
We are proud of the fact that we help boost Greater Sudbury’s cultural mosaic by supporting the above art forms.
Every month (September through May), we are bringing some of Canada’s funniest comics to perform live, for audiences here in Greater Sudbury. Spanning the country from Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax, to Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver, our comedians have performed on Just for Laughs, Comedy Central, the Comedy Network, and SIRUS XM’s Top Comic. The laughs don’t stop when we perform our monthly Jokestack stand-up comedy series. We also team our comics up with some of Greater Sudbury’s funniest up-and-coming artists, to provide local comics with the opportunity to perform next to seasoned pros.
We have also partnered with Trevi Bar & Grill to allow local professional musicians a venue to perform each and every Thursday evening. This opportunity is possible thanks to the support of the SOCAN Foundation. Greater Sudbury has such a rich and deep musical background, and we are constantly amazed by the talent we see on stage at the Trevi for our ‘wine o’clock’ supper concert series every Thursday from 6pm-9pm.
From Broadway musicals, to laugh-a-minute comedies and riveting dramas, SPG also presents the finest live theatre for all ages, at venues across Greater Sudbury. This is the avenue where you, your family, and your neighbours can all have the opportunity to strut your stuff on-stage. For some, it’s a bucket list item, for others it’s their passion. Whatever the reason, it’s live, it’s fun, and it’s proudly Sudbury.
SPG is dedicated to improving the region through the arts, and embodies the qualities that define us as a community: an appreciation for excellence, and an appreciation for diverse ideas and a need to connect with one another.
