Stories for the entire family.
StoryBook Theatre is excited to bring our Season 44, on the growing edge to our audiences with a wonderful assortment of shows for all ages.
We have made the bold decision to move forward knowing that there is a good chance our season will likely not happen in person, but instead online. This prospect excites us as we get to discover new ways to tell our stories and deliver them to our committed StoryBook community.
The safety of our community as a whole is important and we plan to embrace the current regulations rather than hide from them. Please read "How We Plan to Present Theatre This Year" below.
This year we have planned a series of shows the will push our heroes and audiences to their growing edge, a fitting theme for our new world. We are thrilled with our line up and we hope you are too!
HEALTH & SAFETY NOTICE - StoryBook takes the safety of our cast and crew very seriously and worked closely with Alberta Health Services to create this show and became Theatre Cohort for the filming of this process. Read more about our process here

Why become a subscriber?
FIRST CHOICE OF SEATS
As a subscriber you get access to all the tickets before the general public. And this year this is a very important perk as we are only releasing 25% of our seating capacity for all our shows. Seating capacities will only increase once municipal regulations allow for it.
As a subscriber you receive $3 off each and every ticket you purchase, even tickets you add to your order later in the season.
As a subscriber you are invited to take advantage of our payment plan which will allow your subscription payments to be spread out over 3 equal payments.
NO EXCHANGE FEES
You are invited to exchange your seating up to once per production for a total of four times at no additional cost.
All patrons must have a ticket. No babes in arms. All shows are assigned seating.
How we plan to present theatre this year.
Let us start by saying that the safety of our cast, crew, volunteers, patrons and community is paramount and our plan to move forward will always adhere to the regulations set forth by the federal, provincial and municipal governments.
For those wondering how we plan to make this all work on a production side please visit our SAFE REHEARSALS page for more information. Continue reading below for the information as it relates to our audience.
We also know it is time to start moving forward and rather than hide from the current regulations we have made the choice to embrace them. We know this could mean that we will not be presenting our shows to a live theatre audience, we are also excited by the potential this challenge presents. Should we not be able to present our show in person, we are in the process of preparing measures to stream all our programming exclusively to our ticket holders online. This plan will ensure that everyone will still receive a wonderful production by an incredible community of artists allowing us to continue to engage with our community.
Please know that it is our hope that at some time in the coming months we will be able to see an audience of some shape and size join us LIVE for our productions like they used to. As the provincial and municipal guidelines for public gatherings and socialization shift and adjust, we are ready and prepared to do the same, moving closer and closer to bringing our community back together again and do what we do best.
With an uncertain future for live theatre performances and assembly, we plan to sell tickets to our productions with the following considerations being made:
All tickets will be sold as usual with guests selecting their desired seating for each person attending the show.
All performances will be limited to just 25% of our occupancy being sold.
Tickets are being sold with the hope that performances will be live and in-person but with the understanding that alternative options may be required should regulations not allow this to happen.
Sixty days out from the opening night of each production, a decision will be made based on regulations at that time on how the performance will move forward whether it be in streaming format online, live in person in the theatre, or a combination of the two. Read more about Streaming here.
When the time comes to present our productions live and in-person all social gathering protocol will be adhered to and any safety measures being taken will be noted in an email prior to arrival for the show.
