George Ignatieff Theatre

COVID-19 Update for Winter 2022:

In order to limit the spread of COVID-19, the George Ignatieff Theatre remains closed.  At this time, and knowing that events take time and resources to plan, the University is recommending the postponement or cancellation of all events in the foreseeable future that cannot be hosted remotely.

The status of our facilities may change as public health guidance is revised.  Check COVID-19 Updates for more information.


The George Ignatieff Theatre (GIT) is a multi-purpose assembly hall. During the academic term, the GIT is used as a classroom during the day. In the evenings, on weekends, and outside of term, it is used for lectures, conferences, music concerts, dance recitals, plays and performances of all kinds. It is the home of the Trinity College Dramatic Society.
