Thank you to everyone who attended Emerge 2012 in both Edmonton and Calgary. We had a great time and really enjoyed meeting the next generation of Albertan actors.

The success of this program relies on support we receive from the attending professionals from across the province, as well as the fantastic graduates and their faculty advisors

Emerge by the numbers:
Emerge Edmonton saw 59 students audition for 40 theatre professionals from across Edmonton and Northern Alberta. Emerge Calgary saw those same 59 students audition for 60 theatre professionals from Calgary and Southern Alberta.

Students and professionals from as far north as Fort McMurray and as far south as Lethbridge – and even a few from BC – joined us for this amazing event.

Fostering relationships between Alberta’s emerging and professional artists

Emerge Edmonton 2016 (13)

Emerge is an annual audition event held in both Edmonton and Calgary that brings together graduates of Alberta post-secondary acting programs with Alberta’s artistic directors, freelance directors, casting directors, and talent agents. 

Emerge strengthens ties, and increases communications between our post-secondary drama programs, and the professional community. Theatre Alberta initiated the program in 2004, and to date 958 emerging actors have participated in the Emerge audition process for the professional theatre community in our province.

Participation in Emerge is by invitation only. Theatre Alberta contacts post-secondary institutions and professional companies/individuals with invitations to participate throughout the year.

Now that Emerge is done, I feel solid about auditioning and entering this world... Emerge is a great "coming-out" party. There. I did it. Now let's go get jobs.
