ATP’s Mission, Vision and Values


We are provocative contemporary storytellers, reflecting our world through innovative theatrical experiences.


We create world-class contemporary theatre in Calgary from our home in the Martha Cohen Theatre. We are a national leader in new play development. Programming is driven by intersectionality and selected from the finest Canadian and international plays and new works commissioned and developed in-house. Our productions radically explore our space, blurring the line between the audience and the artist through multiple seating configurations each season.



We pride ourselves on the quality of our work, both artistic and administrative, ensuring every aspect of our operations and what we put on stage is exceptional.


We celebrate human connection and the diversity of our community with a spirit of inclusion that is accessible to all.


We explore magical ideas, creativity, and the power of our imagination to create new ways of working on stage and behind the scenes.


We bring together people from every corner of our city, province and nation to better our world through the power of telling stories.


We are guided by kindness, respect, and integrity every day, in what we do and how we do it.
