Administrative history

In 1953, Valerie and Gordon Robertson founded a group interested in drama and bringing live theatre to Kingston. At first the group was known as the Domino Players, then as the Domino Theatre of Kingston, and finally as Domino Theatre Incorporated. The first play produced by the group was In Camera, presented at a local movie theatre between films. In 1963 they obtained a warehouse and converted it into a theatre before formally opening in 1965. By that date the group had produced fifty-three offerings including seven Shakespearean plays and six childrens' presentations. In June of 1964 they had their first adult summer theatre school. They have won many awards in both the Eastern Ontario Drama Festival, and the Dominion Drama Festival. In addition, a number of their members have become professional actors and actresses or established other companies elsewhere.
