Free Student Programs

Our free student programs bring the excitement of live theatre, professional artists and the youth of Calgary together. These programs are stand-alone but can also be paired together with our Student Matinees to provide a totally immersive experience in live theatre.

The following Youth Engagement Programs are provided by Alberta Theatre Projects FREE of charge to youth, students, youth groups and educational institutes and organizations.

Conversations with Artists
Our artists visit you, in your space*, for a behind the scenes conversation about any aspect of live theatre or the creation of one of our productions.

*Visits are based on the availability of artists involved in our productions and are subject to change due to illness or show requirements.
