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.
