Trickster is the largest children’s theatre company in Alberta and primarily delivers one-week residency programs to schools across Alberta. The company is also involved in online and live short-term projects related to global issues, storytelling and science. Trickster was founded by the producing director in 1980.

Trickster had a very effective response to Covid and is now integrating a number of new programs into our regular offerings to schools. This position will be key to finding the funds to continue with those adaptations as well as finding sponsors to subsidize their sales to schools. The other main fundraising focus will be to find funds to support our main week-long school residency program, our new artist training program, as well as capital programs for touring equipment replacement.
