Playing at the Wildhorse Theatre this summer:

Onward and Upward

Thrills! Laughs! Drama! The Scrimley Company was once the toast of the Vaudeville circuit...but the bright lights of yesteryear have faded. Now the plucky Scrimley sisters struggle to stay afloat, in the face of catty critics, blistering budget cuts, and the quirks of their curious cast. Even worse, their beloved theatre is in danger of being sold to the Glass Darkly Cinematographic Company. Will the Scrimley Company prevail? Or will their beloved theatre be shut down, replaced by yet another moving picture house? Can they pull a victory from the jaws of defeat?

Come to Fort Steele Heritage Town this summer to find out!

Show runs from July 1-September 2nd 2018 at 1pm daily.

Daily Gossip Tours

11am & 2pm

Imagine if every community had this! A wildly popular tongue-in-cheek walking tour of the town introduces you to Fort Steele’s colourful residents, helps you peek behind doors, and shows you all their foibles. It’s true, the line between historical and hysterical is sometimes blurred but you can count on a member of the Fort Steele Ladies Auxiliary to give you the goods, and the dirt, with a little ‘creative license’ of course!

These Tours are 30-45 minute walking tours and are included with admission. They are offered daily in the spring and summer seasons.
