Welcome to Inside Out Theatre
We are a disability theatre company in sunny Calgary Alberta equally invested in artistic excellence, community development, and deepening our culture’s accessibility.
We offer community-based drama programs to Calgarians with disabilities that foster a love of theatre, the joy of community, and the rewards of self-expression.
We produce and present plays created by artists with disabilities and their allies that insist on and celebrate their place in the public sphere.
And we work to improve theatre’s accessibility for audience members and to ensure their equity and dignity in attending performing arts in Calgary.

Created by Back to Back Theatre, presented by Inside Out Theatre & The High Performance Rodeo
Filmed at Inside Out Theatre in January 2019
THE DEMOCRATIC SET serves as a snapshot of our community at this unique moment in time. Over 40 Calgarians took part in the filming; members of our ensemble, participants from our community programs, folks we’ve only known so far as audience members, and new friends came together to collectively star in this mesmerizing new film.
We are Treaty People and are honoured to be story-tellers living in Moh’kinsstis, the traditional Treaty 7 territory of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani as well as the Stoney Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge and appreciate the members of the Métis community, specifically the Métis Nation Region Three.
