TLB: At the heart of Lac-Brome’s cultural life


TLB aims to leave its mark on the cultural life of Brome-Missisquoi by positioning itself as a leading regional hub of artistic activity with a varied, attractive, affordable, and quality program.


TLB’s mandate is to offer a varied cultural program in both official languages to serve the entire community of our region. TLB thus defines itself as an open, dynamic, accessible and unifying production and performance venue.


• recognize, respect and highlight TLB’s historical roots and our predecessors’ achievements;
• be artistically and linguistically receptive, and communicate effectively in English and French;
• establish and maintain a transparent and rigorous management framework.

TLB’s program includes plays in English and in French, shows and concerts in a variety of musical genres, productions for school audiences and families, comedy, films and various special activities. It also hosts local groups such as the Knowlton Players, exhibitions of local artists and  the Knowlton film and literary festivals.

A little bit of history

For nearly 35 years, Theatre Lac-Brome (TLB) has invigorated our region’s cultural life. Founded by Emma Stevens, TLB’s director from 1986 to 1990, the theatre continued to grow under Nicholas Pynes, who was at the helm for 28 seasons. In 2017, TLB underwent a major renovation and began to diversify its programming. Taking over in 2018, Dominic Boulianne continued the work begun by his predecessor. At the end of 2019, he was succeeded by actor/director Ellen David, who became the theatre’s new artistic director. The year 2017 marked a true turning point in TLB’s history as it transitioned from a summer theatre into a vibrant and multipurpose four-season venue. More than 10,000 people attended TLB shows and activities in 2019—a 34% increase over the previous year.
