Theatre

The AFA is proud to support a theatre community that continues to produce vibrant contemporary art that connects creatively with Alberta's various communities. The AFA supports theatre activity that ensures high quality and diverse theatre, as reflected in the AFA’s support of individual artists and both professional and community theatre groups.

Whether you live in a big city or a small town, theatre serves as a vehicle for entertainment and community-building; if you want to perform, direct, produce, or simply enjoy, Alberta’s theatre community has something for everyone.
