What is The Grindstone Theatre?

The Grindstone Theatre is a non-profit society founded in 2011 aimed to create professional opportunities for emerging artists. Grindstone is an improv-based theatre company that creates new works and produces scripted plays, musicals, sketch comedy, and improv. Grindstone operates the Grindstone Comedy Theatre which is also home to a variety of independently produced shows which include improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy along with a variety of community events. The Grindstone Bistro, located in the lobby of the theatre offers a selection of local beers, wine, cocktails, and a comfort food menu to perfectly complement your night out.  Our Theatre School offers a variety of programs for all ages, from camps and classes to workshops and conservatories. Our venues are also available for rentals and our performances and workshops are available for corporate bookings. Grindstone also produces a series of festivals which include The Grindstone Comedy Festival, Disco In The Park, Edmonton Fringe Venues, and Mural Massive. 
 

What do I need for class?

We recommend wearing comfortable clothing you can move around in, a water bottle, snack (please keep in mind potential allergies), pen and notebook. Snack breaks may not be part of the class and are at the instructor's discretion. 

There may be materials outside of this list required. If that is the case, those materials will be communicated to you via our class welcome email sent out a week before the class begins. 

 

How does the Showcase work?

The classes typically run for 8 weeks, with a final showcase 7-14 days after the  final class. The showcase date, time and location will be communicated to you in your class welcome package and will be finalized 4 weeks into the semester and a ticket link will be provided. The showcases are usually at The Grindstone Theatre (10019 81 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1W7) and are treated as a full production. The showcases are Pay What You Can, so it is the ticket buyers who decide how much to pay for a ticket. The income made from the showcase goes back into our Education Department.
