To perform one-act plays and reviews at the noon hour for office workers and shoppers in downtown Calgary; to reach an audience of people who are not yet regular theatre goers and also to create a new theatre audience; to establish a permanent theatre company to provide employment opportunities for Western Canadian artists; to meet a need (lunch time entertainment) which is not presently being met by other theatres in this area; and to advance the public’s education in the dramatic arts and to offer entertainment for the benefit of the Calgary theatre going community.

Current Season:

This season is a reflection of the journey we're on. We're bringing you a series of personal stories that explore what it means to make your way in the world. At the end of the day, each of these stories reflects your own joys, frustrations, losses and triumphs. They remind us that we are, each of us, human - and that there's more to our story.
