Dates of existence



La Troupe des Anciens is a non-profit theatre group within the University of Toronto that performs plays by Molière and other playwrights in French. The troupe was founded in 1969, when Madame Paulette Collet - a professor at St. Michael’s College – asked the college’s French department for permission to put on a play with her students. This initiated a yearly tradition of French theatrical productions lead by Collet and performed by St. Michael’s College students and alumni. Since then, the cast and crew has expanded to include the rest of the University of Toronto community, as well as other interested individuals.

The theatre group had initially gone by several different names in the past, as it was in 1996 when they officially started being recognized as La Troupe des Anciens. This name is derived from the troupe’s faithfully returning crew of alumni, who remain as the backbone of the group.
