In times long past, a torch was used to light the stage, bringing illumination to a production. Without it, people were limited to what they could see and when they could see it. In the 1500's, its magnification and reflection could be used as a spot light, bringing special attention to the action on stage. Theatre itself is a kind of torch, lighting the way through story, illuminating the playwright's ideas for the world to see. With that in mind, Torchlight Theatre was born.
We are dedicated to creating quality theatre while developing an atmosphere of connection in our community. To achieve this, we strive to utilize the talented artists in the Rocky View, Airdrie and surrounding area. Torchlight Theatre is an emerging company that is dedicated to producing professional grade theatre and investing in the next generation by creating unique opportunities for professionals to work with emerging artists.
Currently all shows are run primarily on the generous donation of our actors' and technicians' volunteer time and valuable skills.
