When Edmonton theatre audiences think of Shakespeare on stage, the locale that often springs to mind is the Maclab Theatre at the Citadel. This is a spacious setting that transforms into an intimate stage when the lights go down.
All The World’s A Stage
The Maclab Theatre's thrust stage is familiar to many audiences for its excellent staging of many diverse Shakespeare productions. The sylvan wonderland of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the gripping royal conflict of Richard III, the ambition and folly of Macbeth, and the harrowing drama of Hamlet have come to life on the Maclab's thrust stage. The stage, surrounded on three sides by 12 rows of tiered seats, has also been a south side Edmonton neighbourhood for The Aberhart Summer, and the claustrophobic attic hideaway in The Diary of Anne Frank.
Productions for Every Taste
Although it appears small at first glance, the Maclab Theatre has the Citadel's most seats. At 686, it proudly has one more than the Shoctor. Take a glance at their schedule and you will no doubt find something to satisfy your theatrical appetite all year round.
