Concordia University of Edmonton has two main stage productions each academic year – one in Fall (October/November) and one in Winter (March).
Our productions are directed by a faculty member or a guest director from Edmonton’s professional theatre community and every second year we produce a musical theatre piece. Auditions are open to all CUE students, and those with the appropriate prerequisites can gain credit for participation in the productions.
CUE’s independent drama club, Green Thespians Collective (GTC), also sponsors a student directed Festival of One Acts in the Fall Term – usually in December – and a Fine Arts Carnival of Theatre, Dance and Music in the Winter term – usually in April.
