Born in England, Amelia Hall emigrated to Canada at the age of five. In 1948 she made her stage debut in a production of Robertson Davies' "Eros at Breakfast" with the Canadian Art Theatre. She later founded the Canadian Repertory Theatre in Ottawa. She was the first woman to appear and speak on Stratford's stage, and rarely missed a season in the 30 years that followed.
