We’re Back – but we need you!

Please donate today to help us bring back the artists, technicians, and staff that we need to prepare for the most important arrival – YOURS!


The Citadel Theatre believes unconditionally that equity and diversity must be at the heart of our organization. We have made a commitment to sharing stories by playwrights who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC), and supporting BIPOC artists at all stages of their careers. To celebrate these artists, we've created the Citadel BIPOC Fund, which will directly benefit BIPOC artists and their stories.

Individual Contributions

Since 1965, the Citadel Theatre has been the artistic and cultural heart of our community. With your donation, you can ensure that the we continue to make a positive difference to the members of our community:

  • With your generosity, 130,000 audience members will experience the stories created by a local playwright who was able to receive dramaturgical support and development workshops through the Accelerator Play Development program.
  • With your passion, a child with autism was able to develop their imagination and social skills through the I Can Pretend! program at the Foote Theatre School.
  • With your dedication, a group of differently-abled adults were able to take advantage of subsidized tickets through the Tickets for All program.

  • Advancing the talents and aspirations of young, emerging, and established artists through the creative development programs of our Academy, which provides training, mentorship, and employment.
