To create and present vital and surprising performance experiences for the purpose of engaging our community.
One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre (OYR) enriches society through stimulating, provocative and life-affirming performing arts.
About Our Charity
1) Production of new plays. The OYR Ensemble creates and performs new work, which is presented to Calgary audiences in our permanent home, the Big Secret Theatre
2) The High Performance Rodeo: Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts. The High Performance Rodeo is the largest and oldest festival of creation-based performance west of Montreal and has been produced by OYR annually since 1987.
3) Summer Lab Intensive. Founded by OYR in 1997, the Lab is open to actors, directors, writers, dancers, and other artists with advanced education or experience in their field. Held each July in the Big Secret Theatre, its focus is to provide students with tools to create new and original performance work, as well as to improve performance skills. The focus on creation-based study makes the Lab unique in Canada.
