— Sir Peter Hall, director of the Royal Shakespeare Company

Theatre Alberta's popular summer theatre programs, Arstrek for teens and Dramaworks for adults, are about to go full swing this July! There are only a couple spots left in each program: there's slim (!!) availability during Exploration I of Artstrek (July 8-14, for teens 13-15 years old) and the second weekend of Dramaworks (July 12-15).
We'll see you there!!!

- The Three Little Pigs by Iz Crain
- The Readers Theatre Classic Plays
- Chicken Little by Iz Crain
- The Spider and the Bee by Steven Press
- The Mischievous Bugs by Audrey Smith
