The Theatre Alberta Playbill is the most comprehensive resource in Alberta that lists professional, community, and post-secondary theatre productions and festivals during the 2014-2015 season. If you advertised in the 2013-2014 Playbill, you should have already received an email invitation to advertise your season. If not, click here to submit you season!
Minimum print run of 3500 copies! The poster is distributed around the province to theatres, arts organizations, schools, libraries, entertainment reporters and Theatre Alberta members.
Here is an example of how we list productions:
Sept 30 – Oct 9 • Chalked
Prime Stock Theatre, Red Deer
Productions written/created by Albertan and Canadian artists are highlighted with special icons.
Online and Mobile
Your season will also be listed on our online Playbill and web-app for mobile devices. Users can search for productions by month, by region, by theatre classification and/or by theatre company. Online production listings include links to theatre company websites and box office information, as well as links to Google Maps – so audiences can use their smart phones/tablets or desktops to find directions to the theatre venue.
You also have the option of publishing a post about your event on Theatre Alberta’s What’s On blog. Include important information about your event not captured by the Playbill: ticket prices, show times, detailed plot description, featured artists, poster, marketing images, etc. You can schedule your post to be published at any time during the 2014-2015 season.
New: Theatre Alberta and Alberta Culture are working on a joint venture to import data from our Playbill service into the Alberta Culture Calendar. You have the option of sharing your event data and some basic company information with Alberta Culture to upload to the Culture Calendar.
New: Theatre Alberta will accept submissions from High School theatre productions to be included on our online and web-app versions of Playbill and What’s On blog.
Free of charge as a benefit of group membership with Theatre Alberta (group membership must be valid through until June 1, 2015). Rates for non-members: $30.00 per event listing (including GST).
Deadline for submission is June 30, 2014.
