Theatre Canmore is changing the face of performance arts in the Bow Valley with persistently happening theatre. In a radically different approach from traditional theatre, we operate on a collaborative partnership model working with local actors, directors, playwrights, stage crew, musicians, venues and businesses to create grassroots theatre productions and performance opportunities. 

We open doors for talented groups and individuals by providing the booking, production, media, ticketing and advertising support to make performances happen. Profits are returned to the performers and production crew are paid for their services. The emphasis is on low cost, high quality productions that are available year-round for locals and visitors.
