Martha Cohen Theatre
By Rebecca Northan in collaboration with Christian Goutsis and Bruce Horak
Celebrate the Holidays with a fun new show for the whole family! Thanks to a fairy-tale time machine, Edward travels from the olden days to modern Calgary where he meets Cinderella. She’s a young go-getter, he has become the handsome Eddie Prince, and - wait a minute - his uncle is the Fairy Godmother! Will Cinderella or her selfish sisters win the Stampede talent show? Will Cinderella’s crazy step-mom even let her perform?
This light-hearted, music-filled update to Cinderella brings the story into our time with fun, heart, and a whole lot of jokes about life in Calgary.
“For the holiday season, ATP offers high-quality family friendly entertainment that takes you on a new adventure every year. Inspired by the family tradition of pantomime, we’ve asked Rebecca Northan and some of Canada’s top talent to create a brand new theatrical experience. You’ll get to boo the villain, cheer on the heroes, laugh along to spoofs of current pop tunes and join in the fun. I can’t wait to see what they cook up!”
- Artistic Director, Vanessa Porteous

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
