Fostering relationships between Alberta’s emerging and professional artists

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.
