Where can I find parking?

Find complete parking information on our Getting Here page.


Tickets can be picked up at the Martha Cohen Theatre Box Office from 1 hour before show time. The Box Office is located just to the west of the theatre doors.

How early should I arrive before the performance?

Doors to the Martha Cohen Theatre open one hour before performances. ATP productions begin promptly as scheduled. We encourage you to arrive at least 30 minutes before show time to ensure ample time for parking and to enjoy a drink in our lobby.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code at Alberta Theatre Projects. Our shows are just as great in jeans or a ball gown. Come as you are and enjoy the show!


No photography or videography of the show is allowed. You can take photos of the theatre, stage and during talkbacks with artists before or after the show, or during intermission. As a courtesy to the performers we ask that you please turn off your cell phone during the performance.

Does ATP Have a bar?

ATP offers a full bar service in the lobby of the Martha Cohen Theatre. Drinks are available for purchase before the performance and during intermissions. For the ultimate convenience you can pre-order your intermission drinks at the bar before the show – just ask your bartender. Drinks are permitted in the theatre but must be in a plastic cup for safety reasons.

Free water stations are located around the theatre lobby and a public water fountain can be found across from the coat check.


Small packaged snacks including ice cream are available for purchase from our lobby bars.

Consuming food in the theatre is not allowed during the performance.

The nearest restaurant serving a full food menu is Ca’Puccini – located in the Centre Court area of Arts Commons. Evening hours are variable.
