Our Regional Partners
The Calmar Prairie Players are just one theatre troupe of many in central Alberta who are dedicated to bringing high quality stage productions to their respective communities. Rather than competitors, however, the community theatres in Calmar, Devon, Leduc and Wetaskiwin see one another as colleagues; often borrowing actors and other production specialists from the other groups in the area for their own performances. Here, then, is an overview of our 'friends in the biz'.
East of 60 Players (Devon)
East of Sixty Theatre Productions is a community-based drama troupe in Devon, Alberta, Canada. Their mission is to provide opportunities for their members to experience involvement in high-quality theatrical performances, to offer stage plays for their audiences to enjoy, and to enhance the quality of life in the Devon and area community.
East of Sixty was established in 2005 under The Societies Act in Alberta.
Leduc Drama Society (Leduc)
The mission of the Leduc Drama Society is to offer excellent quality theatre to enrich, educate, and entertain our membership, our city and the surrounding communities. The Society, created in 1980, is a non-profit, amateur theatrical group which stages many energetic and diverse entertainment programs the year round.
Stageworks Academy of the Performing Arts (Leduc)
Stageworks introduces kids to the art of dance, the concepts of theatre production and the expression of acting through teaching and performance. Their program is based in the City of Leduc and helps students with discipline and gentle direction. A complete curriculum is taught by qualified, knowledgeable instructors in the stunning performing arts studios in their city’s spectacular Cultural Village.
Waterworks Players (Wetaskiwin)
The Wetaskiwin Theatre Society, operating as the Waterworks Players was founded in November of 2002. They are a community theatre group run, like many of our partners, strictly with volunteers. They are proud to boast over 100 active members. Since their first production, "Up the Down Staircase", the group has staged almost 30 productions.
