We’re Live Sept 2021! 26 July 2021

Although Alberta is fully open as of this posting date, we at Play the Fool and the producing body, Hit That Jive Productions are taking a cautious approach to our September 2021 programming.

The good news is, we expect to be live and in-person this September at the Backstage Theatre for the Play the Fool Festival 2021!

Our plans

  1. We are scaling back our in-person live performances. For the first time, we have not held an open call for acts. We have invited 6 diverse, local performers to perform short solo works.
  2. In-person live performances will happen Friday Sept 24 & Saturday Sept 25 evenings only.
  3. We are not planning any cabarets, nor our beloved Rookie Cabaret. This makes us very sad. But we believe it’s the wisest choice at this time.
  4. We will have some online and on-demand presentations! Including our Sunday expert discussion panel.
  5. For the first time, we hope to have official PtF Festival workshops. We expect one will be in-person on Saturday afternoon, and another online.
  6. We are currently chatting with a partner to offer some Saturday afternoon outdoor family entertainment. 

More information on our 2021 line-up and events coming soon!
