It began in a former Salvation Army Citadel bought by Joseph H. Shoctor, James L. Martin, Ralph B. MacMillan, and Sandy Mactaggart. The theatre's first production to be performed was Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. The theatre was founded on October 12, 1965 with its first opening night on November 10, 1965. In its current location The Citadel has the distinction of being the only venue where the Jule Styne musical Pieces of Eight has been produced.
The organization moved to its current building just off Churchill Square in 1978. Architect Barton Myers designed the structure. The building houses the Maclab, Shoctor and Club Theatres (formally the Rice), Zeidler Hall (the home of Rapid Fire Theatre), the Tucker Amphitheatre, and the Foote Theatre School.
The Maclab and Tucker are part of the Lee Pavilion, a luscious greenscape right in the middle of Edmonton.
