Call for Submissions (Edmonton): Citadel Young Companies – The Citadel Theatre Academy

The Citadel Theatre's Young CompanyThe 2016/17 Young Acting and Musical Companies Submissions are Now Open!

The Acting and Musical programs offer regular classes in acting, singing, speech, dance, and movement, and special workshops in things like auditioning, Shakespeare, and stage combat. The program culminates in a series of performances (a play and a musical) that demonstrate what the participants have learned over the course of the year. The play and musical are chosen specially for the participants – to give each of them an opportunity to shine – and are directed by local theatre artists. Many of our alumni are now in prestigious acting and musical theatre training programs across North America.

The Young Playwriting Company is a hands-on program which facilitates script development under the mentorship of established playwrights and dramaturgs. Students work on short plays which are presented in a series of staged readings at the end of the program year.

The Theatre Production Company is a practical-based program for directors, designers, technicians, stage managers, etc. Students work with professional artists at the Citadel theatre in those various areas and then put their skills to work on one of our year-end shows.

Rogues was founded in 1993 in Vancouver, B.C. by seasoned working professionals, Christiane Hirt and Joe-Norman Shaw – who shared a desire to establish a creative home where actors could explore their craft in an environment devoted to the highest and most demanding artistic principles. After Christiane won the lead role of Hannah in the series Lonesome Dove, the two moved to Calgary where they re-established Company of Rogues in 1996, continuing their vision to cultivate a community of first class actors. We invite you to audit our classes and discover why Company of Rogues is the place to be.
