Presented by the Maclab Development Group & Second Street Fund

The Citadel Theatre is proud to share our productions and our passion for theatre with school audiences from Edmonton and the surrounding communities.

We offer special matinee performances for school groups for many of the productions in our season, and consider these to be an essential part of our programming.

We believe that all individuals should have the opportunity to experience, appreciate, and participate in live theatre. Sharing live theatre with new audiences, be they youths or adults, requires education and cooperation as it is a communal and participatory art form.

The Citadel Theatre works to ensure that all patrons have a positive experience when visiting the theatre.
