Become a champion of new work, always.

Ghost River Theatre Society is recruiting volunteers to join its board of directors. Directors are responsible for the organization’s governance and ensure its activities align with its vision, mission, and values.

Who is Ghost River Theatre?

Ghost River Theatre is a devised theatre company that creates, develops, and mounts original productions through a significant investment in innovative research and development. We make our work in a rigorous, supportive, collaborative-creation environment that recognizes and utilizes all participants’ unique abilities, premiering our work in Calgary and then touring it nationally and internationally. Our work embraces a hybrid of high-tech visual spectacle with low-fi theatrical magic.
