Amazing performance in an intimate setting and The sets are really show stoppers. Performers' ages range from the very young to the mature yet all performers are superb.

Our group went to see the show Mamma Mia. The facility was very comfortable, the sound was great and the actors were fantastic. We were very impressed with the show and intend to go back to see more. I would recommend this facility.

Fast Supper near Citadel Theatre (5 Replies)
I am bringing a group of students to Edmonton for an award presentation next week and looking for a restaurant (could even be fast food) near the Citadel Theatre for a quick (in and out in an hour) beforehand. This would be early - ie. 4:00 pm or so - any suggestions?

There is a food court nearby in the Edmonton City Centre mall if you want to go with fast food. It's one block west of the Citadel. For a restaurant, you could try the Old Spaghetti Factory - they can usually serve a group pretty quickly. They are located 3 blocks west of the theatre.
