Pumphouse Theatres 50th Anniversary Season

In normal times Pumphouse Theatre presents a few festivals a year. With these unusual times we’ve missed opportunities for so many artists to showcase their talents in our festivals. In conjunction with our 50th anniversary, we are not only celebrating 50 years of live events at the Pumphouse we are also doing a one-time pandemic mash-up, catch-up of our festival season!

Over 10 days in March 2022 we are ambitiously presenting the great work that would normally be seen in three different festivals spread over a full season. The Calgary Clown Festival and Common Ground Festival are partnering for one time only to give you the Common Clown Festival where you will be able to see everything from emerging dramatic new works to whimsical comedy. This will be immediately followed by our long running One Act Play Festival presented in partnership with the Alberta Drama Festival Association.

On top of all of that there will also be tributes to 50 years of hard work and fantastic performances that got us to where we are today.

Thank you to everyone who has made the last 50 years at the Pumphouse Theatres possible.

Stay tuned for more information on what will be happening at the Pumphouse Theatres March 9–19, 2022!
