The Canmore Summer Theatre Festival (CSTF) is an annual outdoor theatre festival. A unique aspect of the CSTF is that volunteers from Pine Tree Players perform alongside and learn from theatre professionals and emerging artists.
This year, the CSTF team is excited to present Sense and Sensibility by Kate Hamill based on the novel by Jane Austen, directed by Shelby Reinitz and I Was a Rat by Barbara Field based on book by Philip Pullman, directed by Tyler McClaron. 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 2023 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. Past applicants and participants of previous years’ CSTF must apply again to be considered.
We encourage submissions from diverse artists of all backgrounds, regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Theatre professionals that can demonstrate professional experience, expertise, and/or post-secondary training are eligible for compensation to be negotiated based on qualifications and available funding.

- Mentor Actors
