Who We Are
Founded on July 29th, 1993 by Regan Macaulay and Rob Downes (in order to produce John Mighton’s play A Short History of Night at Oshawa Little Theatre), Triple Take Productions is a Toronto-based production company that produces uniquely Canadian comedic and often genre-based theatre, short and feature-length films for the cinema, television, and computer screens. Triple Take is dedicated to producing exceptionally creative plays and films, ranging from Pirandellian-style characterization, to farcical situation comedies and satirical B-movie parodies…we go anywhere our imagination takes us. Our mandate is to present a Canadian and international audience with Canadian works full of style, thought, and off-beat humour. We also co-produce with other distinctive theatre and media companies in order to enhance our range in genres and the substance of our projects.
In our 20th year, we expanded into publishing and licensing of plays previously produced by Triple Take, or written by writers affiliated with Triple Take (including our 2006 Fringe of Toronto and Best of the Fringe hit, It Was Kit and one of our two 2010 Fringe of Toronto plays, The Aquarium). We have also published the script and a novelette adaptation for our feature film, Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem! (which previously aired on SPACE and Drive-In Classics and is now available to buy/rent on iTunes).
The comical, the horrific, the suspenseful, the silly, the stylized, the farcical…the art that’s entertaining!

We’ve been producing plays since 1993. Our most recent productions were in the 2010 Fringe of Toronto Festival: The Aquarium, by Allison McWood & Regan W. H. Macaulay, and Tightrope, by R. J. Downes.
We’ve been producing short films/videos since 1997. Our feature film, Space Zombies… is available to buy and rent on iTunes. The Scary Bitch Project is available to download for $1.99 in our website shop.
Our short films, Space Zombies: Terror from the Sky! and The Scary Bitch Project both aired on SPACE, SCREAM and Drive-In Classics (2003-2006). Our feature film version of Space Zombies aired on SPACE and Drive-In (2004-2007).
They Suck is in the works…eventually we will be seeking a co-producer for this project.
Four of our previously produced plays are available in print, with another on the way. An original play by Regan W. H. Macaulay called Horror at Terror Creek is also available, and another original play is in the works.
All plays available for purchase are also available to produce. Check out our Publishing and Licensing page for more details, or visit licenseaplay.weebly.com. Please note that our movie script, Space Zombies, is not available for licensing, as it is already produced and available for rent or purchase on iTunes.
