Our home, The Pumphouse Theatre is presenting the Calgary Clown Festival from September 18 – 21. With clowns shows featuring world class clowns.
There are also clown workshops for adults and kids. So you can learn to be a clown if you like (it’s not as easy as it sounds – the headliners, Mump and Smoot, are actually University Professors at the University of Alberta).

2019 – 2020
Looking is about the pitfalls of being middle-aged, single and looking for love. From one of Canada’s most popular playwrights comes this hilarious comedy. Val is an O.R. nurse, Andy is in the storage business, Nina is a police officer and Matt is the host of a morning radio show. They’re middle-aged, single and looking. Val agrees to meet Andy after answering his personal ad in the newspaper and Nina and Matt are coaxed into joining their friends for support. What follows is hilarious, touching, and so very true to life.
Director Ray Mordan Producers Alan LeBoeuf & John Hickie

THE GOOD GAME by ROY TEED
Will be performed in place of Tribes by Nina Raine.
Due to the expense of mounting Tribes, we will be performing The Good Game.
Friday, January 31st 2020 to Saturday, February 8th 2020
Four old timers from a championship team 30 years ago are suiting up for a match against the current Junior Team. Taking place in the arena dressing room, there’s lots of reversion to roles played when they were teenagers, and revelations of how life unfolded over the years. Laughs abound in the locker room banter between Charlie Boyd, the goalie who took too many pucks to the head, flamboyant French-Canadian Francois “Pinkie” Lavac, former team captain Zach Taylor whose NHL dream was dashed by injuries, and the team’s enforcer-turned-English-professor, C.J. MacDonald .
THE WAR BRIDES ARE COMING
Friday, April 10th 2020 to Saturday, April 18th 2020
By Calgary author, Gail Whitehead, the play is set in Olds Alberta. War brides are coming from Europe to join their new families in Olds, Alberta after the war, but the families are not as welcoming as the girls could have hoped and they are met with tension and not exactly open arms. Some adjustments are needed if the war brides are to live here happily ever after.
