Theatre Alberta’s 13th annual Emerge audition events were held in late April, 2016. Maintaining the new shortened afternoon format, 85 Artistic Directors, Casting Directors, and Agents in Calgary and Edmonton saw auditions from 58 Emerging Artists graduating from eight performance training programs.

A big thanks to One Yellow Rabbit and The Citadel Theatre, our host venues for Emerge 2016, for all their support. And thank you to the technicians, students, faculty, and professionals who made Emerge a success.

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.
