Alberta Theatre Projects is preparing for our next few seasons of producing live, professional, contemporary theatre in Calgary. We recently announced our 2022-23 season and we are already planning for our 50th anniversary season in 2023-2024. We create world-class contemporary theatre that blurs the line between the audience and the artist, by telling the most provocative and engaging stories of our time. By embracing the intimacy and unique audience configuration opportunities of the Martha Cohen Theatre, we offer an exciting new experience for our audience with each production.
This is a very exciting time in the history of Alberta Theatre Projects as we look to the future: how our company can continue to be a national leader in new play development, producing and presenting world class productions of contemporary theatre that engages our community by reflecting their stories on stage. We are also in the initial planning stages of a pilot national touring program for our ATP productions.
As we plan to innovate, reenergize and envision a bold, bright future of our company for the next 50 plus years –laying a new foundation for growth in the next few seasons – we are also reviewing how we do things at our company to make the future even brighter.
As we have welcomed new leadership – Rohit Chokhani as our new Artistic and Executive Director, Marcie Januska as our Producer and Claudina Morgado as our General Manager, we are looking for a dynamic Ticket Sales Coordinator to join our team.
