Call for Submissions (Calgary, Canmore): Directors – Canmore Summer Theatre Festival


The Canmore Summer Theatre Festival (CSTF) is a co-production between Pine Tree Players (PTP), a community theatre group based in Canmore, and Artists’ Collective Theatre (ACT), a Calgary-based theatre company. A unique aspect of the CSTF is that volunteers from PTP act alongside and learn from theatre professionals contracted by ACT.

The CSTF is outdoor theatre taking place at the Stan Rogers Stage in Canmore.

The CSTF is now taking play submissions and director applications for the 2020 festival.
