Vigilante - Catalyst Theatre production at Citadel was awesome. well directed, great acting, great singing and great music. all the actors could sing. the music audio was well done. Set design, costumes and the zombie theme were fantastic. edmonton was lucky to be able to put on this true Irish story of the Connelley's in Canada.

Attended Vigilante at the Citadel on Tuesday evening. It was an excellent production even thought the subject matter (the life and massacre of the Black Donnellys) was grim. Amazingly it was a musical! Technically excellent lighting, set design and costumes. Strong acting. One of the best performances I have seen.

There are 4 different theatre venues in the building. The Shoctor Theatre, Maclab Theatre, The Club, and Zeidler Hall which is also home to the improv group, Rapid Fire Theatre. You can never go wrong with the different shows they put up here every year at the main stages. Really quality shows and the actors are just absolutely talented. From... More

The theatre is cozy and clean. The acting was awesome and the theatre staff was friendly. Even though we had seats off to the side of the stage they were still very good. A very enjoyable night out. A bit loud for the younger kids but overall they thought it was awesome!

An excellent performance of this funny play. Great venue, good view of the stage from any seat. Nice eating places nearby and parking below the theatre. There is a lot of legroom and it's very comfortable.

We went to see a play and this was the perfect venue for it. There was a Q&A after the play and we could here the dialogue perfectly.

We parked underground near the Citadel and picked up our tickets at the box office. We then walked nearby for dinner at Bistro Praha, walked back and down to our car and dropped off our jackets then proceeded back to the Shoctor Theatre before sitting down for the 7:30 PM play Kim's Convenience. The central location, the $5.00 underground parking,... More

The Citadel is a beautiful theatre, the seats are extremely comfortable with plenty of leg space. The courtyard area is really nice with its plants. Parking is available at the library parkade which is below the theatre. All of the seats have a great sight line to the stage and acoustics are very good.

We came to see the city of Edmonton and found this theater beside the Canada Place building. I love this theater because one can see different art structures on every corner. They have shown different Broadway shows that were mostly shown also in Time Square,NY. I love the uniqueness that this theater offers to Broadway show lovers like me. I... More
