How We Do It
The Shows: Defining Moments, ATP’s 2018-2019 season, features five plays that run from September through March. We have a capacity to seat over 53,000 audience members in 140 performances, with each performance seating up to 419 patrons in the Martha Cohen Theatre.
Every so often a moment comes along that forces us to look deep within ourselves and decide who we are and what we stand for.
Riding a wave of profound change, Calgary finds itself in one of these defining moments – a place where it is neither what it once was, nor entirely clear what it might become. So too does Alberta Theatre Projects.
These moments often seem to take place in the midst of chaotic events or sweeping change, and it’s only in hindsight that the depth of their impact fully revealed. Likewise, our 2018-19 season catches its characters on the cusp of major turning points in their own stories, unbeknownst to them.
Whatever destiny might ultimately hold in store, one thing is certain: their futures are brimming with possibility.
DEFINING MOMENTS 2018-19
The Exchange is a series of lively and engaging events per season that help deepen the level of personal connection between the Calgary community and the work you experience on stage. Activities within The Exchange, such as our Backstage Tours, Pizza Night, or Afternoon Tea are easily accessible and provide a comfortable setting to indulge one’s curiosity and gain an insight into the plays ATP produces.
Youth Engagement: One of the key mandates of ATP is to invest in future generations so that Canada’s young people appreciate and participate in the arts. We strongly believe that by involving our young people in our Youth, Outreach & Education initiatives, we not only share our passion for live theatre but also equip youth with the skills and confidence to succeed as the community and business leaders of tomorrow.
