Theatre For All

"Theatre Calgary’s 23/24 Season features plays that are filled with joy, inspiration and entertainment. There’s no better way to put a spring in one’s step than with a variety of feel-good shows that are guaranteed to lift the spirits.

This year marks the introduction of Theatre for All, a new $39 ticket initiative that will make the high-quality theatre we produce more accessible and affordable than ever. As Calgarians continue to pay more at the supermarket, we’re making it easier to escape to a night of theatre.

We welcome you to join us, and be a part of it!"

Meteor Shower

By Steve Martin

Max Bell Theatre (Arts Commons)

An Absurdist, Fast-Paced Comedy
On a warm summer evening in 1993, Norm and his wife, Corky, are setting the table for a dinner party to accompany a once-in-a-lifetime meteor shower. They’re hoping for an evening of polite conversation with Norm’s tennis partner, Gerald, and his wife, Laura. But from the moment the  evening begins, things become increasingly surreal and chaotic, challenging the couples’ relationships and perceptions of reality. Steve Martin’s signature wit is on full display in this comedy, where the jokes are served as quick as the drinks.

This production is made possible by the generous support of The Al Osten & Buddy Victor Legacy Fund.

World Premiere

Selma Burke

By Maria Crooks & Caroline Russell-King

Directed by TBA
April 2 to 27, 2024
Martha Cohen Theatre (Arts Commons)

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.

Produced in partnership with Alberta Theatre Projects.
