Emerge is an annual general audition event held in both Edmonton and Calgary for emerging artists from Alberta’s post-secondary performance training programs. It’s an opportunity for emerging artists to introduce themselves and their work to the professional community, and for professionals to see the work of many emerging artists over the course of one day.
Emerge fosters relationships between Alberta’s emerging and professional artists. Since 2004, Emerge has been a key milestone in the artistic journey of hundreds of Albertan actors, marking their transition from theatre students to theatre artists.
Theatre Alberta’s 18th annual Emerge auditions will take place in April 2022 at ATB Financial Arts Barns in Edmonton and at Vertigo Theatre in Calgary. We look forward to hosting theatre professionals and graduates from theatre programs across the province. 2022 Emerge will include graduates from MacEwan University, University of Alberta (BA & BFA), Rosebud School of the Arts, University of Lethbridge, U of C School of Creative and Performing Arts, Company of Rogues Actors’ Studio, Azimuth Theatre, and Ambrose University.
