Keeping Tradition Alive In Our Community

Keeping Tradition Alive In Our Community


Whether it’s thumbing through family photos, listening to memorable holiday music, or whipping up a batch of your favourite cookies, tradition plays a huge part of our holiday celebrations. This year we’re having to do things a little differently, and hope you’ll join us by adding our all-new digital production of A Christmas Carol, to your holiday to-do list.

This December marks the 34th season of sharing A Christmas Carol with friends and families across Calgary. BMO Financial Group, our Corporate title sponsor for this abridged adaptation of Dickens’ classic, knows a thing or two about honoring tradition. BMO is a long time advocate and patron of the arts, contributing to establishing and demonstrating longstanding support to some of Canada’s founding regional and national cultural institutions. In 2019, BMO donated almost $33 million dollars across Canada, 27% or which went directly to the arts and culture sectors – their second largest focus area for funding and support.

BMO believes stories told through the performing arts have the power to change lives and build better communities, particularly during this uncertain time, when storytelling serves to inspire and bring us together, or in this case, from stage to screen. For the team at BMO, supporting the community is an extension of their mission and purpose, to boldly grow the good.

“It’s inherently part of our DNA to do what we can to help our partners innovate, particularly this year as we navigate through the evolving impacts of COVID-19” says John MacAulay, Regional President at BMO and current member of Theatre Calgary Board of Directors. “At BMO, we’re proud ambassadors of the team at Theatre Calgary, who deliver a dynamic repertoire alongside talented artists each season.”

MacAulay explains that historically, we’ve always looked to the arts for understanding, particularly during difficult times. “We remain steadfast in our belief that arts and culture enrich our lives,” he said. “Whether it emerges in a music class at a local community centre, or blossoms on a national stage, the arts are an essential source of interpretation, inspiration, and understanding – and we’re pleased to play our part with Theatre Calgary during this critical time.”

Theatre Calgary thanks BMO for their ongoing support of not only the work we do, but also to their commitment to the arts in our community.
