What We Do
Alberta Theatre Projects creates and produces great contemporary theatre with the objective of making life more beautiful and telling stories that make sense of what it means to be alive right now. From the beginning, ATP has always had a mandate of presenting new Canadian plays.
Through innovative programs such as the Enbridge playRites Festival and more recently Enbridge New Canadian Plays, ATP has continued its rich history of producing new Canadian works.
- Vision: A world where minds and hearts are opened through the life-changing experience of theatre.
- Mission: We create community by producing relevant, high quality contemporary theatre; by playing a national leadership role in the development and creation of new Canadian plays; and by bringing audience and artists together in an exchangearound the work.
Some of the new works premiered have gone onto international acclaim including Mary’s Wedding by Stephen Massicotte, The Shape of a Girl by Joan MacLeod, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love by Brad Fraser, and Butcher by Nicolas Billon.
The reach of Alberta Theatre Projects extends far beyond the doors of our theatre. We are committed to actively engaging the community by encouraging interaction and feedback between our patrons, volunteers, supporters and artists.
ATP continues to invest in the future by supporting emerging artists and providing unique opportunities for Calgary’s youth to get involved with and grow their passion for the theatre.
