Are you passionate about making the arts accessible for everybody?  Love the theatre (even if you can’t hold a tune or recite a monologue)?  Care about providing amazing opportunities for Calgary’s young folks? If this sounds like you, come and join Storybook as a Board or Committee member and help us steward community theatre here in YYC.

Whether you have a talent for fundraising, fiscal management, governance, or something completely different, we’d love to talk to see where you fit into our community and how you can help Storybook continue to evolve.

If this seems to be of interest to you and you would like to discuss further with our Board committee please send us an email!

StoryBook Theatre is Canada's largest volunteer-driven Theatre' for Young Audiences and families.   Each season we bring together some of the industry's brightest emerging talents both on and off the stage to create some incredibly accessible theatre for the whole family. In our almost 45 years of serving Calgary, we have fostered the love and passion for theatre arts in over one million people.
We bring stories to life in a way that encourages children and their families to dream about who they are and may become, to explore the story from different perspectives, to think using inductive reasoning, and to connect to other people and ideas.

We are always looking for vibrant, community-focused individuals to join our volunteer board of directors and membership committee.


We seek individuals with a variety of experiences, and in particular, the following areas would be a great asset to our board:

  • diversity

  • fundraising

  • accounting

  • marketing and communications 

How do Board Members serve the cause?
Board Members support StoryBook behind the scenes.  They attend regular meetings. They review and create policies. They participate on committees. Board members will participate in the creation of fundraising goals and plans. The board works towards meeting StoryBook’s vision to provide a vital performing arts organization known for its commitment to accessible and diverse family theatre programming. Consider joining our committee and be part of this incredible Calgary legacy of theatre and community engagement.

They need Committee Members like you to come and join us in our mission to ensure that everyone has the chance to attend a performance, be part of a cast or crew, or hone their skills in one of our fantastic theatre classes.
