Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre

A rich heritage – rooted in the community and open to the world – is a treasured part of what makes the Segal Centre a leading contributor to the cultural and artistic mosaic of Montreal. 

The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre has been dramatising the Jewish experience and sustaining the Yiddish theatre legacy at home in Montreal and on tour to cities in North America, Israel and Europe. This Theatre has many reasons to celebrate. Its audiences keep growing, numbering in the thousands for each production, and young actors keep joining the large repertory company. Its plays – classics and original works, dramas and musicals – are critically acclaimed. Its archives record the treasures of the past while YAYA, its youth wing, remains vibrant and popular.
