The Michael Green Green Room is a testament to the legacy of the co-founder of One Yellow Rabbit Theatre.

Michael Green (1957 – 2015) was a driving force and visionary for Calgary’s arts community. The green room where speakers and performers prepare prior to entering the Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall has been named in his honour.

From street level, you can see Library programming in the Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall.

Also an ideal location for large-scale events, seminars, conferences, and private bookings, blinds can be lowered on the large floor-to-ceiling windows.
