The Swamp Donkey Musical Theatre Society was established in 2018 by a group of individuals from Bragg Creek and surrounding area who, simply put, really love musical theatre!
That Name: Why “Swamp Donkey”?!
We chose the name Swamp Donkey for our society because we wanted something unique to Bragg Creek. Our community is set amidst a spectacular natural setting in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. “Swamp donkey” is a slang word for a moose, one of the many animals with whom we share our gorgeous home. As such, we thought it was fitting to name our society after this majestic creature. The somewhat comical name also shows that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. While we seek to provide quality productions and educational opportunities, our first focus is on fun!
The goals of our society are to:
- Foster the development of musical theatre skills and teach life skills through involvement in musical theatre productions and educational opportunities, regardless of participants’ age or ability; and
- Increase our sense of community and appreciation for musical theatre by providing the greater community of Bragg Creek and members with musical theatre performances in public spaces and inviting the audience to become a partner in a shared experience.
