Always a great bang for your buck

No matter which play you see they are always professionally done and a great time. We generally buy season tickets to at least 5 plays

The Citadel is a wonderful venue for plays. I have seen shows in the MacLab and Shoctor theatres. I especially like the ambience with the water feature and greenery. It makes for a relaxing place to sit and have coffee before your show. Having a restaurant on the premises also makes for great date night plans! The theatres run from... More

Had the pleasure of seeing Avenue Q with friends on the May long weekend in the Shocktor Theatre. All staff were so friendly and helpful. I don't think there are any bad seats in this lovely theatre. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Avenue Q is a comic musical that touches various taboo subjects such as racism, personnal relation or getting out of the closet and admitting you're gay. The songs are catchy, the artist are very expressive and you can tell they like doing what they are doing. Tickets are a little expensive compared to the other show I visited in Edmonton.... More

Citadel Theatre is a great place to enjoy a play. Staff professional with a fantastic atmosphere. If you have time before the play there is a bistro to relax in or you can go up to the second floor and enjoy a glass of wine or beer before the show begins . You may also pre pay to have your...
