Suggest a Show / Direct a Show

Morpheus Theatre invites the community to make proposals for shows to be produced during our 2015/2016 season.

Morpheus presents 4 quality shows each year (a farce or comedy, a Christmas family production, a contemporary drama, and a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta) at the Pumphouse Theatre, in both the Victor Mitchell & Joyce Doolittle Theatres. We are looking for WELL-KNOWN SHOWS with HIGH AUDIENCE POTENTIAL that fall within our four show categories.

Ideally, the shows will appeal to a wide family audience (primarily 12 and up, although under 18 is not the target audience).

* Title & Playwright of show
* Cast size of show, with male/female breakdown
* Why you think Morpheus should produce it
* Which theatre it would work best in
* Potential challenges

We are also seeking experienced and passionate directors to submit a letter of interest along with a resume with related theatre experience and background. Applicants do not need to submit for a specific show.

* Name of director
* Directing and theatre related experience
* Types of shows applicant is interested in directing
* Director’s Vision for the show (including overall thoughts about how it would be staged & any special effects, set ideas, costume ideas, technical considerations) (if applicable)

Morpheus Theatre thanks everyone for their submissions, however, only candidates being considered for this season will be contacted.  If you suggest a play that we accept, you will receive two free tickets to see that production.

Please email or deliver letters of interest by mid-January, 2015 to:
               Sean Anderson, Artistic Director, Morpheus Theatre
               3512 – 5th Avenue NW Calgary, AB T2N 0V7

Another AGM Notice – It must be September

Greetings all Community Theatre Supporters,

The Morpheus Theatre Society will be holding its Annual General Meeting on:

Wednesday September 24th, 2014

7:00pm to 8:00pm

Morpheus Rehearsal Centre

3512 – 5th Avenue NW

We welcome all members, past and current participants and volunteers, and anyone else interested in the inner workings of community theatre to join us for a summary of the past season, a look forward to our 20th season, a page turner of a review of the financial statements, and a nail bitter of an election for the Board of Directors.

Voting memberships are $1 and can be purchased at the door.

Morpheus Theatre would like to thank Dennis Daly and Pat Turner, who have been active members of our board for many years and will not be standing for re-election.

Morpheus is seeking interested, and interesting, individuals to join our Board of Directors and to help guide our theatre through the 20th season and beyond. Skill sets that would be valued by the board include marketing, promotion, publicity, legal guidance, financial guidance, and fundraising (grants, corporate and individual donations). If you are interested, please send an email to prior to Wednesday.

We truly hope to see you out at the AGM, and we promise, you’ll never get that one hour or one dollar back.

Sean Anderson

Artistic Director, Morpheus Theatre
