About Calithumpians

Calithumpians is a theatre troupe based out of Fredericton, New Brunswick that has been entertaining audiences for over forty years! Headquartered at 168 Church St., the troupe is named after an ancient tradition wherein young people, dressed in costume and disguise, paraded through the streets celebrating and making joyous noise.

From our humble beginnings performing educational shows in schools, the Calithumpians have expanded their repertoire to include family-friendly outdoor theatre, guided walking and motorcoach tours, historical interpretation, drama camps, training and consultation, school visits and workshops, dinner theatre, our signature Haunted Hike, and a variety of shows for audiences in and around Fredericton, and across New Brunswick and Canada.


Calithumpians’ shows and services emphasize local history and pride, folklore and legend, environmentalism, health and wellness, and current social issues, all with a hint of humor and fun!


Come check us out in downtown Fredericton from July 2nd to Labour Day!
