Profile Last Updated: August 29, 2008
The Citadel, which covers an entire city block, is a huge theatre complex where audiences will discover a range of Canadian and international works, new plays and established classics, light comedies and deep dramas, and, of course, musical favorites. The old Salvation Army Citadel was bought for $100,000 and a dream was born. The first play ever put on at this theatre was “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?”
With several different venues — the Rice Theatre, Shoctor Theatre, Tucker Amphitheatre and Zeidler Hall — you’ll have many choices on any given night. Many award winning plays have been performed here, including the popular “Two Pianos, Four Hands”, “Little Shop of Horrors”, and many of Shakespeare's works. Critical and commercial success has been a hallmark of the Citadel. Whether it's Julius Caesar, Cyrano de Bergerac, or one of Ibsen's wrenching personal dramas, audiences are accustomed to being treated to stellar performances and provocative theatre.
The Foote Theatre School
Whether you’re 6 or 65, you can take classes at one of the largest theatre schools in Canada. You can even audition for productions when you’re a part of this well-regarded institution. Students also get ticket discounts on any productions playing at the Citadel during their courses. Buy season tickets and get reacquainted with the power of the theatre arts.
Note: The theatre stages “Talk Back Tuesdays”, where after the play you can have a post drama chat with the cast.
