Our Mission

Trickster Theatre creates community based theatre productions through it's residency programs. We also create web-based tools to support the use of theatre as a teaching tool - including KIDS GO GLOBAL and Act2Learn.


Trickster Theatre is based in Calgary, Alberta and has been operating for 40 years. We tour across Alberta, creating approx. 50 original shows a year in all kinds of communities. We do week-long residencies in schools, transforming the gym into a theatre. We involve up to 600 actors and provide the lighting, sound, costumes, curtains and props.

We can set up a segregated account to support any project.
