In the last 3 years, The Kick and Push Festival, presented by Kingston Theatre Alliance, has built a hub of culture and art inside the Grand Theatre and created a community atmosphere where the unique, the new, the innovative, and the unknown share the same space, openly and freely. K&P has expanded to work with other theatre companies in order to continue to offer opportunities to the theatre community across Canada, and to provide unique theatrical experiences for Kingston Audiences.

The Kick & Push Festival would like to acknowledge the commitment to this project of Kingston Theatre Alliance. Support for the Kick & Push Festival is provided by the City of Kingston, Kingston Accommodation Partners, The Great Waterway, and Downtown Kingston BIA!
