Martha Cohen Theatre

Martha Cohen Theatre

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style 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.

Named after Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
