Sponsoring the Citadel Theatre 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 130,000 each season and an annual operating budget of $13M. 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.

Corporate Sponsorship

At the Citadel Theatre, we feature world-class theatre; however, we do not just put on plays; we build theatre for today and for the future. The Citadel’s Academy is Canada’s most comprehensive program for creative development in professional theatre and offers many unique sponsorship opportunities. We also offer partnerships for all of the exciting plays in our season at various levels and can recommend benefits that help you meet your corporate needs.
