For those searching for more live entertainment and concerts throughout the seasons, check out The Matchbox, a fantastic, new Red Deer performance venue. The Matchbox opened its doors in November 2007 and has since put on some major theatrical productions and concerts. Their vision: To provide eclectic live entertainment, showcase various musical genres and a venue for emerging artists.
Come for the Show
If you’re looking for serious stage entertainment, then get started at The Matchbox. This performance arts venue schedules a variety of shows for theatre exhibitions and music concerts. Their concerts range from jazz to blues, with some Latino, funk and soul thrown in for good measure. The Matchbox has developed a largely diverse audience base for their live shows or and their musical concerts. Even performers say playing at The Matchbox is a blast, as the sound and lighting are state-of-the-art, and the service is always professional.
The Wow Factor
If you’ve ever watched a Broadway show in NYC or even at Calgary’s Jubilee Theatre, chances are you’ve developed a taste for productions of great creative value. The Matchbox wants Central Albertans to have that same “Wow” experience, albeit on a smaller, more intimate scale. You’ll know this is a professional establishment once you walk through. It’s a well-laid out facility, with everything necessary for staging every kind of show.
Note: Highly recommended. Venue fills up quickly
