About Artstrek 2022
It’s 2022 and Theatre Alberta is delighted to be back at Red Deer Polytechnic—for Artstrek!
After a year away and a year online, we are excited to welcome students back IRL with Qui Nguyen’s She Kills Monsters: Young Adventurers Edition. Building on this enthusiasm, this is an opportune moment for us to foster emerging theatre artists in every corner of the province. Funds raised through the #ChipInForKids and Birdies for Kids programs will support Artstrek and other Theatre Alberta programs and services that are designed to grow and enrich the theatre community in the province!
