A BRIEF HISTORY...

Pegasus Performing Arts was founded by Wayne West and Fabienne Le Panse. They changed the name from Pegasus Performing Arts to Theatre West in 2007.  The original company first began as an amateur production company, and enjoyed early success by touring the island of Montreal with fairy tale productions for very young children. For many of our students and parents it is still affectionately known as PEGASUS.
 
It was after sold out  productions of "Beauty and the Beast" ; "Aladdin" ; and "Sleeping Beauty" that our company gained quite the following with young people and parents, so in the fall of 1993 they opened the school Pegasus Performing Arts.  Each year some 250 students participated in Annual and Summer Camp programs held by what would become known as Theatre West.     The company is now run by the father and daughter team of Wayne West and Cassia Le Panse-West.
