The Experience

Participants in the Citadel/Banff Professional Theatre Program spend four weeks in beautiful Banff and one week in Edmonton learning performance skills from elite theatre professionals.

The 2019 program participants will perform in a reimagined production of Shakespeare's The Tempest, directed by Josette Bushell-Mingo, former Artistic Director of Tyst Teater, Sweden’s National Deaf Theatre. The production will feature Deaf and hearing actors onstage together. It will be a truly unique retelling of Shakespeare’s most magical - and final - script. The Tempest will take place in Shoctor Theatre.

The Citadel is proud to support SOUND OFF, Canada’s national festival for Deaf performing arts, based in Edmonton.
