The Big Secret Theatre is not a secret anymore and at one point it wasn't even a theatre! The space, hidden away on the +15 level of Arts Commons was originally designed to function as a lounge. In 1987, One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre approached Arts Commons seeking space and the lounge space was leased to them on a trial basis. Today the company calls the Big Secret Theatre their permanent home. 

This venue has limited rental dates, to inquire about renting this space, please contact Johanne Deleeuw at or 403-264-3224, ext. 4370.
