To enrich, entertain and strengthen our community through performing arts experiences

and mentoring opportunities for all ages.


At Imagine Performing Arts, our passion lies in igniting the imagination, inspiring the spirit, and engaging the community through the powerful medium of storytelling. Our mission is to create captivating and unforgettable theatrical experiences that weave together the threads of creativity, emotion, and artistry. With a commitment to excellence, we aim to bring forth exceptional productions that not only entertain but also leave a lasting impact on the hearts and minds of our audience. Through the magic of theatre, we strive to connect with people from all walks of life, fostering a sense of unity and shared experience. As we continue on this journey, we remain dedicated to telling great stories that resonate, provoke thought, and elevate the human experience to new heights.  


"Imagine Performing Arts" began as a branch of Music and Play, a music and performing arts educational facility founded in Calgary by Darryl and Colleen Lindenbach. 

In 2019 Imagine was registered as a non-profit society and began branching out as a mainstream community theatre company in Calgary.  

During the pandemic, while theatre doors were closed to public gatherings, Imagine provided opportunities for actors and theatre lovers to enjoy some lively online readings of plays, through the digital portal of "Master SuiteTheatre", which brought much needed creative community to the many actors and listeners who tuned in to hear stories presented from a wide variety of scripts.

Since 2019, Imagine has staged JOHN AND JEN (2019), THE WOMAN IN BLACK (2019), ALL TOGETHER NOW (2021),  LOVE LETTERS (2021), GONE TO GLORY (2022) and THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (2023).  

For the 2022-23 theatre season, Imagine received Calgary-ACTS CAT Award nominations in 14 categories, and won 5 awards in total for Stage Design, Direction of a Play, Sound Design, Ensemble in a Play, and Leading Performance in a play.

Most recently, the company has rebranded to become known as IMAGINE THEATRE YYC, and relocated our digs to the community of Inglewood, building a collaborative relationship with the beautiful and historic Lantern Community Church.
