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.

Theatre Calgary’s 23/24 Season 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!"
