ABOUT US

The Kingston Meistersingers, based in Kingston, Ontario, is a not-for-profit community theatre group dedicated to producing musical productions that involve the talents and skills of participants of all ages.

 

 

The Meistersingers were founded in 1968, as a Rotary initiative, and was launched by a few Rotarians who were keen on seeing more community based musical theatre in the Kingston area. With a little start up money they put together their first musical…and in the years following produced one show a year, mostly Gilbert and Sullivan classics, and then moved into some other favourite pantomimes and operettas over the following years.

 

 

The group has always operated as a not-for-profit community based organization, and attracts performers of all ages, including children. Every aspect of the productions – set design, costuming, advertising, performing, stage-managing – is all done by volunteers. The shows have always been musicals, and in the last few years, focused more on traditional favourites.
