Saturday Matinee Chats


For each of the six Mainstage shows every season, there is one Saturday matinee performance that is immediately preceded by what we call a pre-show “Mat Chat.” It’s an opportunity for the audience to have a conversation with interesting people connected in some way to the production – and it’s included in the price of your ticket!

The next Sat Mat Chat will take place on March 3, 2018, at 12:45 p.m. prior to the 1:30 p.m. matinee performance of Mamma Mia!.

Neil Kuefler will host Jessie Van Rijn (Citadel Producer) and Joshua Wickard (Assistant Box Office Manager) to discuss the upcoming 2018/19 Season at the Citadel. 

ReImagine: The productions in our 2018/19 season look at stories through a new lens. These shows are full of brave characters trying to remake their lives and “change their stories:” struggling musicians falling in love and finding a connection against the odds; precocious young women overlooked by their families forging their own path in the world; an Indigenous soldier fighting on the Western Front during World War I; lost souls looking for comfort in a working-class bar in a factory town; a politician scrambling to avoid a national scandal after a fundraising party goes awry; and a shipwreck that reveals tempestuous tempers and hidden motives among the marooned survivors. The Citadel theatres will come alive with different voices, cultures, and innovative performance styles (including two shows with the same cast happening at the exact same time, as the actors run between the Maclab Theatre and The Club!), featuring work by fantastic local artists and some of the most exciting theatre-makers in North America and beyond.

The Citadel’s 2018/19 Season is full of bold characters, theatrical innovation, and stories seen through a new lens. We hope you’ll join us to ReImagine what theatre can be!
