History[edit]

Shadow Theatre was incorporated in 1992, operating under the governance of a volunteer Board of Directors. The four main people that created and maintain the theater are John Hudson (Artistic Director), Coralie Cairns (actor), David Belke (playwright-in-residence until 2017) and John Sproule (Artistic Advisor) and have been with the theater since it opened. The company is housed in the Varscona Theatre (176 seats) in the heart of Old Strathcona. Shadow Theatre is one of the two managing partners in the Varscona Theatre Alliance. The venue hosts some 400 performances annually. The theatre has produced a regular main stage season since 1995, typically offering modern classics, innovative contemporary plays from around the world, and new Canadian works.[2]

The company also facilitates a half day theatre-making workshop for elementary school classes.
