Health and Wellness at
SideNote Theatre


Humans First

We will always prioritize the health and wellness of our designers, patrons, sponsors, charities, and their families in the business practices of our company operations. 

Check out our safety feedback from our 2020 cast and team project closure surveys!


Wellness Testimonials


We supply trained and educated designers to support our teams and audiences from auditions to closing night.


We inform about and provide all humans we interact with about up-to-date information and materials to keep our community protected.


Regardless of the times, it is always smart to have contingencies. We never want to be a position where we have to cancel a show, so we will always have options for how to deliver our new stories to you.


We follow all AHS mandated measures to keep you safe, and more!

rapid response measures.

The most important priority at SideNote Theatre is to have healthy and happy humans creating, performing, and attending our productions. We are certain that the measures we have outlined here are in our Designer and patrons best interests and we are always looking for ways to improve our protocols. 

We have updated our COVID Health and Safety policies

as of 2021!

SideNote Theatre has a policy of inclusivity, equality and conscious opportunity for every designer engaged in our seasons. 

We will always welcome designers from every race, gender, sexual orientation, sexual and gender identification, socio-economic status, cultural background, age, experience level, learning level, religion and demographic. 

We want to share your story of significance. 
White Room


“There was always someone there who I knew I could talk to, in any way, if life ever got in the way of the production.”

“I felt safer at SideNote than I did anywhere else, other than my home.” 

“SideNote fosters an environment in which you don’t feel like you would be punished or looked down upon for not being on your top game 24/7.”


In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.

This sacred gathering place provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation. Thank you for your enthusiasm and commitment to join our team on the lands of Treaty 7 territory.
