Treaty Acknowledgement & Company mandate

Prime Stock Theatre works, grows and inspires on land which has been a meeting place for the great storytellers of the Treaty 6 & 7 nations for centuries. This area, and the river that runs through it, is the traditional territory of the Niisitapi (Blackfoot), (including the Siksika, the Piikuni, and the Kainai Peoples), the Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda, Cree, Saulteaux and Métis peoples.  We strive, in the spirit of the treaties, to keep this a place of friendship and trust and promise.  It’s a work in progress.


Prime Stock Theatre is an Artist-driven theatre that cultivates and challenges the limits of expression and expectation; dedicated to producing a repertoire that is thematically rich, visually adventurous and intellectually daring.

Ethnocultural mandate:

Prime Stock Theatre stands proudly in solidarity with Indigenous, Black, peoples of colour and diverse orientation who face oppression or disenfranchisement, and sincerely work to respect, champion, and support underrepresented voices in all jobs; we warmly welcome and encourage those who self-identify as coming from underrepresented communities to apply.


You can have a voice as one of us, and our community.

Bard on Bower Production Team:

The Bard on Bower is an artist co-op; the core cast, crew and production team are shareholders in the festival, and payment is based on how much money is made beyond the recovery of a portion of our expenses.


  • COSTUMERS- Each show needs a costume designer who is responsible for sourcing and altering (when necessary) all costumes for one of the two productions, in conjunction with the vision the Director has for that show and each character. We will work with you to find casual volunteer help with alterations if needed.
  • SET/PROP DESIGNER(S)- There is a base ‘festival stage’ with a structure of platforms and stairs which needs design elements to make each show look unique. The line is quite blurred between set, set dressing and props in this setting. You would work with our TD to see all physical elements completed, installed and stricken from the Bower Ponds stage.
  • STAGE MANAGERS– Each show needs an SM throughout rehearsals and performances. The schedule is not consistent as both shows rehearse at the same time, with the week and even each day sometimes split between both productions. You will be involved in operating the audio during performances.
  • TECHNICIAN– You will be responsible for the set up and operation of the sound system for all performances. You will attend rehearsals close to performance time to help create the mic map and to become familiar with the productions. You will also assist with the light hang, and the daily dressing of the set.
