TheatreBooks was established in 1975 by Leonard McHardy and John Harvey, who met while working in one of Toronto's "alternate" theatres. The store soon became a mecca for theatre professionals, students and ardent fans. We carry books on all aspects of theatre production, as well as opera and dance. Our section on Drama and Theatre in Education is recognized internationally. In 1980, TheatreBooks expanded to include books on all aspects of film and filmmaking. As with theatre, the store has become a resource for anyone interested in movies. Recently, TheatreBooks expanded its stock to include screenwriting software and is now a leading source in North America.
