Over 115,000 people attended shows at the Citadel last season. This Citadel was founded in 1965 in the old Salvation Army Citadel; the new building, the current Citadel Theatre, opened in 1976. This professional theatre company, with full-time staff of approximately 40 people, is a registered non-for-profit organization. The Citadel engages actors who are members of the Canadian Actors’ Equity Association. Production and Stage Door personnel are members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Employees.
Every year, the cast of A Christmas Carol collects food and donations from their audiences for the Edmonton Food Bank. The Citadel has approximately 600 donors and over the years, audiences have donated over $500,000. Each season, the Citadel donates several hundred tickets to non-profit organizations for fundraising activities or for clients and volunteers to attend the theatre.
