To our Members:

 

Michael Green - Co-Artistic Director and co-founder of One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre, curator of the High Performance Rodeo, Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts, and curator and creative producer of Calgary 2012 - was tragically killed in a car accident north of Regina on Tuesday, February 10th.

Three other artists travelling in the car with Michael were also tragically killed:
Michele Sereda, artistic director of Regina's Curtain Razors theatre, Lacy Morin-Desjarlais, and Elder Narcisse Blood, who worked with Michael on Making Treaty 7.

The impact Michael has had on the art and practice of theatre stretches well beyond Calgary's, and Alberta's, borders.

Our hearts go out to his family and friends, the OYR ensemble, and all who worked with, were inspired by, and were mentored by this remarkable artist.

Michael Green

“Don’t Rest In Peace Michael. Don’t you dare. Instead, remain the restless, spirited, living embodiment of pure imagination you always have been. Stay with us and inspire us, for the rest of our days.”

~Ken Cameron

Artstrek 2015

Theatre Alberta is pleased to announce the Artstrek 2015 play of study: William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Theatre Alberta selects a different play of study for Artstrek each year and contracts a new team of theatre professionals to develop a curriculum centred on that script.

One of the Bard's most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a perennial summer favourite. The play features the misadventures of four young wooers, and a group of (mostly) rough and tumble amateur actors, who happen upon the domain of some spiteful sprites and trickster woodland fairies on the eve of midsummer.

With mirthful magic spells that cause madness and the lunacy of eloping lovers (as well as a lofty lead-actor) the script abounds with thrilling challenges and opportunities for young thespians. Paired together, Artstrek and A Midsummer Night’s Dream are the quintessential summer fling... very possibly the #bestmidsummernightever.

Artstrek 2015 will be held at Red Deer College during the following dates:

  • Exploration I: July 5 – 10, 2015
  • Exploration II: July 12 – 17, 2015
  • Exploration III: July 19 – 25, 2015

Theatre Alberta will mail the Artstrek 2015 poster-brochure to Theatre Alberta members and schools in March; but our Artstrek 2015 website is now online and ready to go at theatrealberta.com/artstrek2015!

Most importantly: online application to attend Artstrek 2015 begins April 1st at 10AM.

In the meantime, take a few minutes to share some Artstrek memories by watching our Memories from Artstrek 2014 video, featuring teachers, supers and students from last summer's program. Click here to watch!

See you this summer!

 

PICKS OF THE EDMONTON FRINGE - 2ND TOUR OF ALBERTA BEGINS

Never Let the Crew See You Cry by Linda Wood Edwards

MAA & PAA Theatre and Northern Sabbatical Productions have embarked on their Picks of the Edmonton Fringe Alberta tour with its production of Never Let the Crew See You Cry by Linda Wood Edwards. The production is currently touring to venues in North and Central Alberta, including Daysland, Camrose, Fort McMurray, Edson, and Spruce Grove.

This will be the second Alberta tour from a stimulus project intended to promote Albertan theatre productions and artists to presenters in smaller and rural communities in our province. Never Let the Crew See You Cry is scheduled to tour to five communities over seven days during February 2015. All the venues presenting this production have also booked at least one other show from the Picks of the Edmonton Fringe 2014/2015 lineup.

We would like to thank and profile the presenters that have booked Never Let the Crew See You Cry to present to their communities: DaysArts, Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre, Keyano TheatreChautauqua Edson Arts Council, and Horizon Stage.

Click here to learn more about the Picks of the Edmonton Fringe theatre touring stimulus project and to find out more about bringing an element of the Fringe to your community!

The Picks of the Edmonton Fringe tour stimulus project is a joint presentation of Theatre Alberta, the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta (ATAA) and Fringe Theatre Adventures. This project has been supported by a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

 

THEATRE ALBERTA SEEKS ARTSTREK COMMUNITY SPONSORS

Community Sponsorship

Every year, a tradition continues in which the most enthusiastic Artstrek students apply to organizations in their community to sponsor their application fees to attend our summer school for teens. There are a number of champion organizations that provide Artstrek sponsorships annually to youth in their community.

In an effort to help these enterprising students, we are collecting and sharing information from any community organization that provides (or would like to begin providing) sponsorship funding. This is a great way to not only provide assistance to resourceful local teens, but also a great way to support the long-term health of your own theatre community.

If you offer or would like to offer teens community sponsorship funding, please email Aaron Talbot at [email protected] to have your organization and program profiled on our Artstrek Community Sponsorship webpage.
