#ShopLocalGiveBack - Grindstone Theatre

Saturday January 05 , 2019

Where can you go in Edmonton for stand-up comedy classes, burlesque instruction, acting classes, craft beer, bistro dining and dynamite entertainment of all kinds, all in the same building? Grindstone Theatre was established in 2011, and is widely known for their improvised musical ‘The 11 O’Clock Number!’. They also produce Blackout Sketch Comedy, provide corporate entertainment, offer school workshops and free monthly events such as The Open Improv Jam. They opened their new space in Old Strathcona in 2018, and are the proud owners of an intimate 75 seat theatre and licensed restaurant, with shows running nightly from Tuesday to Sunday. Keep an eye out for their ever-evolving programming schedule!

We highly recommend going to check out one of their awesome (and usually hilarious) shows. While you’re there, grab a bite to eat in their bistro. Grindstone is a proud supporter of Mealshare, who partner with restaurants to provide meals for youth in need. Anything on the menu with a Mealshare logo next to it gets you YOUR meal, and1 provides one simple, healthy meal to a youth in need. It’s the ultimate in BOGO – and a total win-win!

So what are you waiting for? Get a group of friends together for a good laugh and a bite to eat, all while supporting a great cause like Mealshare AND local performers!
