We are an Edmonton based community theatre committed to the production of engaging and vibrant works and providing our member volunteers opportunities to participate in all aspects of theatre production.
Walterdale Theatre, founded in 1958, is one of Western Canada’s oldest amateur theatre groups. With the exception of a paid part-time Administrator, Walterdale Theatre is operated entirely by volunteers with a love of theatre, members of any age and background have the unique opportunity to participate in all aspects of live theatre. We do it for love, not money.
During its 50th Anniversary, Walterdale Theatre Associates launched a major fundraising initiative, 50 years of Footlights, to fund both a permanent record of Walterdale’s history and major renovations to preserve the current location of Walterdale Theatre.
Walterdale Theatre is raising significant funds to enable needed renovations and enhancements to allow us to provide an outstanding and entertaining environment for volunteers and patrons. We have recently set up online donations through CanadaHelps.org. If you would like to make a payment using a credit card or PayPal, you may use this service. We still take donations through TIX on the Square, by mail, and through our donation box located next to the concession in the theatre. Thank you to everyone who has made a contribution by volunteer hours, support and monetary means.
