After a brief hiatus in July and August, Theatre Alberta is excited to once again partner with our member organizations to offer their communities theatre training opportunities and expert knowledge through Workshops by Request.
Theatre Alberta’s Workshops by Request is a unique and highly subsidized program that shares the talents and resources of Alberta’s leading theatre artists with a variety of theatre companies across the province. Between September 2014 – June 2015, a total of 24 workshops were offered, reaching more than 250 theatre artists and enthusiasts in both rural communities and Alberta’s urban centres.
A total of 18 theatre organizations partnered with Theatre Alberta to offer workshops in communities across the province, including: Airdrie, Calgary, Calmar, Camrose, Canmore, Drayton Valley, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, High River, Lethbridge, Ponoka, St. Albert, Sundre, and Wetaskiwin. Workshops topics ranged from stage lighting to site-specific theatre creation, from character development to shadow performance. We were also pleased to partner with St. Albert Children’s Theatre and the City of St. Albert to support a special workshop with Broadway musical theatre stars Pasek & Paul.
Workshops by Request are coordinated by Theatre Alberta at your request and targeted to the specific needs of your theatre organization. Workshops in both technical and non-technical aspects of theatre bring highly trained professionals to your community for one, one and a half, or two-day workshops.
Any theatre organization in Alberta that is a group member of Theatre Alberta may apply for a workshop through the Workshops by Request program, on any topic of their choice. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
