2024 Season Banner

Creativity has no expiry date! ™

Western Gold Theatre is the premier company in the country focused on sharing and celebrating the talents of senior professional theatre artists (age 55+). Western Gold also mentors emerging professional artists as they share the boards with us. We are a vibrant creative gathering place for artists and audiences, young and old.

Theatre is not a “job” where you punch a clock daily and then collect a gold watch on your 65th birthday— theatre people do not retire! Like good wine or a robust stew, we get better with age. As we simmer, our flavour deepens, we are more nuanced, more capable of being brave, better able to face challenging work. And one thing is for sure, older people are the best storytellers ever! We celebrate this.

CONNECT & CELEBRATE WITH US!

Our 2024 season is all about connection! Looking backwards in order to look forward; celebrating classic tales, embracing new stories and leaning into the “rabbit hole.” It’s about the threads of laughter, whimsy, experience and the conundrum that comes with living life!
