Etobicoke Musical Productions (EMP) is a not-for-profit theatre company incorporated under the laws of Ontario. Formed in 1965 and incorporated in 1989, EMP is a member of Arts Etobicoke, the Mississuaga Arts Council, Association of Community Theatres - Central Ontario (ACT-CO), Theatre Ontario, and The Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology. The Group is administered by a Board of Directors elected annually from and by the members. Every member can vote, and anyone who is a member for two consecutive years can run for the Board.
From 1978 to 2013, EMP produced two shows per year; one in the spring and one in the fall, running for 8 performances each. Since 2013, we have been performing one major fall show at Meadowvale Theatre in Mississauga as part of the Encore Series. For each production, we engage a director, musical director and choreographer. All others involved on stage and in various production areas are volunteers. We typically spend $60,000 on each production with the major costs being facilities rental, production royalties, costumes, sets lighting/sound, music, advertising and promotion.

Our stated purposes are to (i) study and perform at least one musical production each year, and (ii) support and further the arts in the community. To these ends, EMP and its members:
