Vision, Mission, Value Driven Priorities
Evergreen proudly offers school curriculum-based musical theatre touring shows and artist-in-residency programs. We also offer custom workshops, presentations, and activities for conferences and organizations nation wide. Beyond that, we also provide commissioned works for zoos, science centres, museums, and corporations. Evergreen Theatre has been on the forefront of “green” programming for over 25 years.
Evergreen Theatre was established in 1991. Its founding members Scott Mair, Tara Ryan, Elinor Holt, Gerald Matthews, Don Enright and Monique Keiran were passionate about creating opportunities for a larger audience to access the excellent interpretative theatre programs they created and performed each summer in Kananaskis Provincial Park. Driven by this desire to expand their audience base, and a deep enthusiasm for science & environmental issues, they formed Evergreen Theatre: a touring educational, environmental, science based, theatre company for young audiences.
In the years since its inception, Evergreen has grown and expanded in diverse ways, without ever losing sight of its commitment to young audiences and the fine art of science. While touring shows and residency programs remain flagship endeavors, programming now includes the Big Green Puppet Bus, home school programs, and Drama Camp.
