It is kind of sad that people will pay so much for travelling has beens and not support local theatre by balking at the even low ticket costs. The theatre experience is very good. Some of the touring entertainers sell swag in the lobby making it very congested, but this is no different in any other venue. You must go an experience the accoustics and the high quality of shows that Community Theatre bring to this wonderful stage.

Combination Art Gallery, Arts Centre, Museum and small coffee shop. The Art Gallery didn't have any identification of the artists hanging at that time other than the main exhibitor.

Our family visited the museum section of the Esplanade. The Medicine Hat museum closed its doors and moved all exhibits to this downtown location. It is a collection of classic memorabilia, from the early days of Medicine Hat broadcasting to modern technology and other points in between. All ages will enjoy this tour showcasing many pioneers in the Gas City.

The Esplanade has a varied program of shows, from ballet to comedy and country music. The museum describes the town's history, and early life for the settlers - worth a visit. The art gallery showcases artists working in many mediums, from paint and photography to quilting.Exhibitions change, and there is often a chance to meet the artists and hear them discuss their work. There are interesting sculptures outside, and the oldest house in the city is preserved beside this building.

The venue is multi purpose with an art gallery and Heritage museum as well as a theatre area that provides an intimate feeling with the act. There is not a bad seat in the house so don't worry about where you are seats might be. All staff was very friendly and attentive. The only drawback I would say is the price of the beverages. A can of beer was $6 and you couldn't take it into the venue unless you purchased the cup for $1.00 more. Not a huge issue though as your not there to indulge in the beverages, and the prices are pretty much par for any venue of that nature.
