The 2022/23 MacEwan University Theatre Season will feature three musical productions that will showcase the talents of students – and entertain audiences!

“This is our first three-show season since before COVID and we are excited to be offering these shows in our state-of-the-art theatres,” says Dawn Sadoway, program coordinator and assistant professor, Theatre Department. “All three shows are remarkably different and offer unique musical challenges to our student performers.”

The season opens with Company, running from November 30 to December 4 in the Triffo Theatre.

From musical theatre's most renowned composer, Company is Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking modern musical, and the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book. Company is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at marriage, relationships, vulnerability and “being alive,” and features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Sondheim's best-known songs.

The second show of the season is London Road, running from February 8 to 12 in the Tim Ryan Theatre Lab.

Developed by the National Theatre, England, London Road won the 2011 Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical. This unorthodox musical, based on true-crime events, examines the shockwaves spread by “The Suffolk Strangler” as he terrorized the English backwater town of Ipswich in 2006. This innovative musical focuses on the life-affirming changes on a shattered community as it heals and transforms.

The season wraps up with Spring Awakening, running from March 29 to April 2 in the Triffo Theatre.

The winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. This landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality, and rock and roll that has captivated audiences like no other musical for years.

Three-show subscriptions for the season are already sold out. “We are super excited that audiences are reacting so enthusiastically to the shows,” says Sadoway. “Our aim is to sell out every show to give our students the chance to experience the energy of performing to a full house! I'm feeling good about that being a real possibility.”

Casual tickets for each show are now available by visiting or by calling the MacEwan box office at 780-497-4470, Monday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m.
