The Prairie Theatre Exchange is a professional theatre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The Prairie Theatre Exchange was part of the Manitoba Theatre Centre, originating with the Manitoba Theatre School, beginning in 1960.

In 1972 the Manitoba Theatre Workshop began and moved to the old Grain Exchange building in downtown Winnipeg.

In 1981 an increased professional role in the community began and name was changed to the Prairie Theatre Exchange to represent this change.

After operating for many years on Princess Street the opportunity to move the theatre in 1989 into the Portage Place shopping mall on Portage Avenue came up where they have staged some of Canada's most celebrated and innovative plays.
