Studio Babette explores heritage themes, and stories from the many cultures which contribute to the wonderful fabric of Canadian life. Our productions represent the creativity and hard work of a vibrant community of local artists, craftspeople and promoters in the Hamilton area.

Studio Babette advocates:

  • equity for all, regardless of age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, political viewpoint or economic circumstance;
  • eating locally, to sustain the environment and optimize health;
  • appreciation and respect for our heritage, and others' heritage;
  • freedom of speech and artistic expression;
  • independent artistic sustainability.

However, we do not use these beliefs as themes for our plays, but rather as ideological under-pinnings, by having these values represented with artistic subtlety in all of our work.
