Tiny Theatre: Three Tinies in Calgary, Alberta

Obviously we love showing off tiny homes, but what else could you use a handcrafted tiny structure for?

Blackbird Tiny Homes recently built three tiny spaces for theatre productions, which are now located in Prince Island Park in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Three Tiny Homes for Tiny Theatre in Canada

The merchandise tiny sitting in the park. Cute additional porch.

The tinies look so cool with the skyscrapers behind them.

Here is the “sound system” tiny house.

Another look at the merchandise tiny store on wheels.

The longest of them for the changing room. Cool!

All 3 tiny homes are undersized as they are just used for theatre productions and nobody is living in them. They are approximately 11′ tall and 7′ wide on unmodified trailers. One of the 16′ homes is used to sell merchandise and the other is used as a sound room for show productions. The 24′ home is used as a dressing/change trailer for the actors.

Standard framing construction was used with minimal R12 insulation, pine tongue & groove siding, Galvalume roofing materials (also used on the openings), laminate flooring and 30 amp electrical service. The openings on the merchandise and sound trailers open via gas assisted shocks which make opening and closing them easy for anyone.

    Not much here. This is when we need to see the inside of the box. Just seeing the inside is not informative at all.

      Cough, cough, I’m sure you meant just seeing the outside is not informative at all. But… did you “actually” read what was written? It explains “why” only outside is shown. Suggest you do just that.

        Cough, Cough, yep meant Outside and not inside. Though I still want to see the inside. Just seeing the outside does not tell me anything. They have not changed the words since I read them the first time but pictures can say ten thousand words. I am planning my house and property. I have my tiny for living and travelling, a tiny for my train room since I am a model Railroader, one for the wife for her hobby a third for a theatre and a final for guests. they will be located around the pool and one more may be a changing room if found to be needed. I am interested to see what they are doing for the inside.

    I think this makes us aware that tiny houses can be used as businesses too. Take your business with you on the road. Interesting concept.

      Diane I have seen several schoolies for that purpose of living and working in them and traveling where their shows are.

    Bravo (get it?) for using tiny buildings in such an unconventional way! They sound like they are perfectly suited for “tiny” productions in the park!
