Sponsoring the Citadel and our Productions

The Citadel Theatre is one of the largest not-for profit theatres in North America, drawing patrons from a large geographic region that includes the greater Edmonton area and central and northern Alberta.

We have approximately 7,000 regular subscribers, a total audience of 110,000 each season and an annual operating budget of $11M. The budget is supported through the combined revenue sources of ticket sales, government funding, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships and donations from individuals. We rely on the support of community-minded organizations like you to accomplish all we do.
