2023-24 Season of Shows

Get ready for 2023-24: SHORT SEASON, BIG DRAMA! That’s right, we’re talking a line-up of fantastic performances, all crammed into a shorter season bursting at the seams with drama, comedy, and everything in between. An entertaining season that may look a little different than we’re all used to, but one we know will be unforgettable, and will be the perfect lead-in to our biggest season yet in 2024-25… our 50th Anniversary Season

The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon

By W.O. Mitchell
Director TBC 

FEBRUARY 20 – MARCH 10, 2024


Wullie MacCrimmon is in for the match of his life… and, potentially, afterlife. When Wullie MacCrimmon, a shoemaker in the 1930s foothills town of Wild Rose, muses aloud that he would give anything to skip his curling team in the MacDonald Brier, the Devil (a travelling salesperson who deals in wholesale souls and retail sin) suddenly appears and makes him an offer. Wullie makes a counter offer, and one of the greatest matches in curling history is on – a Black Bonspiel. When the Devil appears with her curling team–Judas Iscariot (lead), Lizzie Borden (second), and Macbeth (third)–Wullie and his team are in for one hell of a match.

Coincides with the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, happening in Calgary February 16 – 24.

Audience Considerations: Suggested for ages 12+

Selma Burke

By Maria Crooks & Caroline Russell-King
Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg
Presented in partnership with Theatre Calgary

APRIL 2 -27, 2024


The true story of the woman behind the American dime. Few know of Selma Burke, the Black American sculptor who played a major role in the Harlem Renaissance movement of the 1920s and 30s. Among her works is a bas-relief plaque of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, which is now widely accepted to be the basis for the design on the American dime, and something for which she never received credit within her lifetime. A stirring play about the importance of art, courage, romance, and justice, Burke’s rarely-told story is brought to life in this world premiere by Calgary playwrights Maria Crooks and Caroline Russell-King.
