A note from Steve Derpack,
Artistic Director/Facility Supervisor of Festival Place 

 

We’re excited for the day when we can once again host many acts, including ones we had to postpone, in the 2021 Presenter Series. We will showcase yet again an outstanding and eclectic group of performers from across Alberta, Canada and beyond.

The theatre is second to none and features tiered seating, box seats, balcony viewing, and cabaret seating, and every seat is a great spot to experience the many amazing performances that take place on our stage. 2021 will also see us featuring many sound and lighting upgrades thanks to generous support from Canadian Heritage!  

You may see or even participate in a dance festival or poetry readings. You might even hear a guest artist presenting on a topic from the rich and vast vaults of Canadian history. Rest assured, you’ll be treated to a variety of genres as local, regional, national, and international acts all take to the stage. There is truly something for everyone in the theatre.

You’ll be excited to wine and dine on the amazing food served in our lobby concession by our new partners, The Hat Catering. Join us for a night of relaxation, refreshments and outstanding entertainment by some of our returning favorites, and some new fantastic discoveries!
