The Reading Rainbow

The Reading Rainbow


Chromatic Theatre’s “Reading Rainbow” is a play reading series exclusively for artists of colour. The purpose is to bring culturally diverse artists together to share space, one afternoon at a time. We will sit together and read a play (generally by a culturally diverse artist), then chat about the play, and get to know one another. It’s an exercise in getting familiar with the canon of culturally diverse works in Canada, and in building community amongst Calgary’s culturally diverse artists.

This is a drop in group – there is no obligation to attend every session. We meet approximately every two weeks, usually at the downtown Central Library. This project will be live from March 2017 – August 2017.

Timmy, Tommy & The Haunted Hotel


Banner by Mike Hooves

When sisters Timmy and Tommy get trapped inside the old Barrington Hotel, they’ll have to work alongside the ghostly inhabitants if they ever want to make it out alive—or home in time for dinner. Using original music, humour, and puppetry, Timmy, Tommy, and the Haunted Hotel is a black comedy about death, change, and a couple of ordinary kids.

Timmy, Tommy, and the Haunted Hotel will be going to the Regina and Edmonton Fringe Festivals in the summer of 2017. Click here for more information.
