Hardline Productions was born in a rundown office building in Gastown in the summer of 2010. We borrowed as many theatre toys from our alma mater (thank you Studio 58) and transformed a decrepit office space, held together with earthquake bars, into a 30-seat black box theatre.

In our first “season,” we rolled out three shows in four months. We would rehearse all day long and perform at night. We took tickets, sold beer at the bar, and then ran on stage and let’er rip! It was crazy, and stressful, and exhilarating, and magic.


Hardline has become known for integrating high energetic physical theatre into all of our productions. We blare loud music, use every inch of the stage, and make bold theatrical choices. Most of all, we love working with our friends. We listen to others and integrate feedback. We thrive when we are working collaboratively.
