Civic Theatres Toronto has announced a public naming contest to replace their existing moniker.

The naming competition begins on Monday, April 9, and will unfold in three parts beginning with a general call for name submissions until April 27.

“Civic Theatres Toronto is seeking a new name that better represents their future – a future pushing the boundaries of creativity through artistic excellence, education and public engagement,” said Mayor John Tory in a statement.

After the submissions have been made, a jury will select up to five names. Those will be available online for a period of public voting from May 9 to June 3.

“We invite our audiences, artists, creators, producers and business colleagues to submit a new name,” said Clyde Wagner, President and CEO. “We’re seeking a name that evokes the idea that our organization is where artists, performers, and audiences, of all cultures and interests converge.”

Winning names will be awarded prizes that includes: 4 tickets to event(s) at the Sony Centre in 2018, 4 tickets to event(s) at the Toronto Centre for the Arts in 2018, or 4 tickets to event(s) at the St. Lawrence Centre in 2018.

Civic Theatres Toronto is one of the city’s largest multi-arts organizations, operating three iconic venues and presenting a full range of performing arts, theatrical and concert events: Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, and Toronto Centre for the Arts.
