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 as well as central and northern Alberta.
We have approximately 7,000 regular subscribers, a total audience of 130,000 each season and an annual operating budget of $13M.
The five performance spaces of the Citadel Theatre complex are: the Shoctor Theatre (proscenium stage); the Maclab Theatre (thrust stage); The Club (a cabaret-style venue originally a black box theatre); Zeidler Hall, and the Tucker Amphitheatre. More than 250,000 people come into our space each season, with thousands more following along on our social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
We are currently home to three resident theatre companies: Catalyst Theatre, Rapid Fire Theatre, and Theatre Yes, in addition to creating partnerships with Edmonton theatre and dance companies, including Brian Webb Dance Co. and Firefly Theatre & Circus. In the 2018/19 Season, Theatre Yes will take over every space except the theatres with a site-specific, immersive work destined to amaze audiences.
