Join us for performing arts and creative play opportunities for the whole family!

YMCA Performing Arts Series in the BMO Theatre

YMCA Calgary, along with our Arts Partners, Quest Theatre, Lunchbox to Go, Festival of Animated Objects and Bach Tots, will present four family-friendly live shows in 2018. Some of our shows are paired with a hands-on creative play experience. All shows take place in our new BMO Theatre at Shane Homes YMCA.

Creative Play Experiences

In addition to checking out these fantastic live shows in our new theatre, you and your family can participate in hands-on creative learning! With the help of our arts partners, we are offering a series of arts-based workshops and other ‘creative play’ events that are inspired by the stories we are bringing to the stage – from making indigenous drums to building puppets to crafting holiday creations!

Our first creative play opportunity is with our arts partner Quest Theatre: a 3-part workshop series called ‘Coming into the Circle’. See further detail on this creative play opportunity below, and stay tuned for more details on our other creative play experiences we will be offering throughout the season.
