Concordia University of Edmonton’s “Theatre at CUE” produces two mainstage productions each academic year – one in the Fall (October/November) and one in the winter (March).
Each mainstage production is directed by either a faculty member or a guest director from Edmonton’s professional theatre community. In addition, every second year, Theatre at CUE produces a musical production. Auditions are open to all CUE students, and those with the appropriate prerequisites can gain credit for their participation in the productions, either as performers or part of the technical team (Drama 307/308).
CUE’s independent student drama club, Green Thespians Collective (GTC), also sponsors a student directed One Act Festival late in the fall term as well as a Fine Arts Carnival of Theatre, Dance and Music late in the Winter term.
If interested in participating in CUE’s thriving theatre community, see the Events Calendar for audition and performance dates,* or email Drama Program Coordinator Glenda Stirling, firstname.lastname@example.org.
