The Canmore Summer Theatre Festival (CSTF) is a co-production between Canmore’s Pine Tree Players (PTP) and Calgary-based Artists’ Collective Theatre (ACT) and DIY Theatre (DIY). A unique aspect of the CSTF is that volunteers from PTP perform alongside and learn from theatre professionals.
This year, the CSTF team are proud to present William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and The Hobbit by Kim Selody based on the novel by J. R. R. Tolkein. Performances will take place outdoors at the Stan Rogers Stage in Centennial Park, Canmore.
The CSTF is currently seeking applications to be a part of our 2020 Production Team. We welcome applications from community theatre volunteers and theatre professionals. Preference will be given to qualified volunteers and being based in the Bow Valley is an asset.
Theatre professionals that can demonstrate professional experience, expertise, and/or post-secondary training are eligible for an honorarium and a travel allowance if they are outside the Bow Valley area.
The positions marked with an asterix (*) will need to be available for the festival auditions Feb 29, March 1, March 7 and 8 in Canmore, AB.
