EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/14 -- Department of Canadian Heritage
The Honourable Laurie Hawn, Member of Parliament (Edmonton Centre), announced this support today on behalf of Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Shelly Glover.
An investment of $123,888 through the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund enabled the Citadel to purchase and install a multimedia projection system and a hear-back monitoring system for the 686-seat Shoctor Theatre.
Additional funding of $25,000 through the Canada Arts Presentation Fund has allowed the Theatre to present the Beyond the Stage series. The series features folk, cabaret and jazz music and includes elements of theatre and comedy. Community engagement activities, offered in conjunction with the series, include panel discussions and artist talks.
-- Founded in 1965, the Citadel Theatre was housed in an old Salvation Army Citadel building in downtown Edmonton until 1976, when the Theatre moved into its current complex. -- The Citadel Theatre is Edmonton's first professional theatre company and for nearly five decades has been one of the most successful regional theatre companies in Canada. -- Over 115,000 people attended shows at the Citadel last season.
"Theatres provide an opportunity to connect with people and communities across the country through music, dance and theatrical performances. The Citadel Theatre plays an important role in supporting a network of artists while promoting and strengthening arts and culture in Edmonton."
-Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages
"Edmonton is home to a flourishing arts sector, and by supporting institutions like the Citadel Theatre, we are ensuring our community can continue to enjoy live performances. The Citadel has been engaging audiences of all ages for nearly five decades, and we are pleased to contribute to its future success."
-The Honourable Laurie Hawn, Member of Parliament (Edmonton Centre)
"Over the years the Citadel has been encouraged and supported through various Canadian Heritage programs. We are absolutely thrilled to be the recipients of these grants. The Canada Cultural Spaces Fund is allowing unique projection capabilities to be used for the first time on a world premiere of a Citadel original, Make Mine Love, this spring. The Canada Arts Presentation Fund grant is helping us bring Canadian artists to the Citadel as well as develop new audiences through our Beyond the Stage presentation series."
-Penny Ritco, Executive Director, Citadel Theatre
