Theatre Alberta’s 18th annual Emerge took place Tuesday, April 17 in Calgary at Vertigo Theatre and Monday, April 22 in Edmonton at the ATB Financial Arts Barns. This was the first year back to an in-person Emerge event following a cancellation in 2020 and an online Emerge in 2021.

We hosted artistic and casting directors and graduates from theatre programs across the province. This year included graduates from past two years who were unable to attend Emerge due to the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic. 2022 Emerge included graduates from MacEwan UniversityUniversity of Alberta (BA & BFA), Rosebud School of the ArtsUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Calgary School of Creative and Performing ArtsCompany of Rogues Actors’ Studio, and Azimuth Theatre

Fostering relationships between Alberta’s emerging and professional artists

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 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.
