What's Happening

We are thrilled to add a second performance of The Flying Detective, Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 7:30 PM.

A hit at the 2019 Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festival, playing to sold-out audiences, this multimedia theatre piece will dazzle as it transports you back in time to the early days of Alberta’s aviation history.

The year is 1919 and a police officer is killed on duty in Edmonton. The murderer, John Larsen, is already on his way to the coal branch near Edson and has a two-day head start on the cunning Detective Campbell. With the help of legendary first World War fighter pilot Wilfred “Wop” May, Detective Campbell may have a chance to catch him. Together, Wop and Campbell take flight to pursue Larsen and bring him to justice.

Tickets are $36 and can be purchased through our City website. Questions can be directed to The Arden Theatre box office via email;
