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.
About TRICKSTER THEATRE SOCIETY
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.
