I have been a season ticket holder for the past eight or nine years. The plays are consistently good to excellent, with a nice variety. You never know exactly what you’re going to see even though the theme is mystery theater. Truly excellent value.

There is no such thing as bad seats here. Each seat gives a different perspective, but not in a bad way. No matter where you sit, you are bound to enjoy the show. Third or first row does not matter, because the seats cover three...More

Six of Us just enjoyed "The Lonely Diner"! Excellent presentation! Full House! Theater is very intimate and shows well as a small venue. Refreshments are available, and Theater staff are very professional. Miss this attraction in YYC, and you miss a major "Live" event! Highly...More

I just saw Dracula, which is an uproarious, hilarious comedy. One of the best shows I’ve seen vertigo theatre in the past few years. Check the website to see if the show continues to the dates that you will be in Calgary.
