Theatre Alberta’s Emerge

It is with profound regret and care that we inform you that we must *postpone* Emerge 2020, which was going to take place April 20 in Calgary and April 27 in Edmonton.
It’s our sincere hope that we’ll be able to hold the event in the late summer/early fall of 2020. We know that some artists may not be available to participate when we settle on the new dates for a variety of reasons – we’ll work with everyone to come up with creative solutions that provide support to as many artists as possible!
We will be working to process full refunds for everyone as soon as possible and practical. Payment for the rescheduled event will be collected when we have the new dates and plans.
We are here to support the Alberta theatre community during this unprecedented time. Please keep in touch and let us know what you need.

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