A Few Words

From the theatre you didn't know you wanted all along.

Veronica Rawnsley and Abagail Vanmerlin met while studying Drama at the University of Calgary. Together they have relentlessly worked to realize the vision of establishing affordable and accessible venues capable of serving local, national, and international artists alike. The Centre for Artistic Development offers free venues to artists and production companies, with the ability to retain 100% of all ticket sales

when staging original works. Operating free of a board of directors, and without government funding, grants or corporate sponsorships, The Centre for Artistic Development is focused on artistic freedoms without competing political, personal, or corporate interests. Abagail and Veronica are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible artistically, while allowing artists to realize their original works.
