Calgary's favourite night of unpredictable theatre
The 10-Minute Play Festival
Part of One Yellow Rabbit's High Performance Rodeo

January 9, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
Boyce Theatre (BMO Centre, Stampede Park)

Six of Calgary's most exciting indie theatre companies tackle a nigh-impossible task: create an original 10-minute play in 24 hours, inspired only by a prop and a line of dialogue! These props and lines are selected by the surprise host for the evening, who themes their selections around one of their unexpected passions.

The result is a series of adrenaline-charged, insomnia-addled performances that are unpredictable, uninhibited and unforgettable.


Tickets are available through the High Performance Rodeo website. Click here to purchase tickets online, or call the Arts Commons Box Office at 403.294.9494 to purchase by phone!


The Boyce Theatre is on the Stampede grounds inside the BMO Centre at 1410 Olympic Way SE. It is easily accessed from the Victoria Park Stampede LRT Station. There are also public parking lots on the grounds - the best parking would be in zone 1 right off of Olympic Way. Here is a map to help you find your way.


- This event sells out every year, so make sure to buy your tickets early!


- Participating companies tweet about their all-night creation processes with the hashtag #hprodeo if you'd like to follow along starting in the early evening of January 8, 2016.
