Company Description

The Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino is located in beautiful Kananaskis Country. Just 30 minutes West of Calgary at the junction of Higway 1 (Trans Canada) and Highway 40 (Exit 118.) With a backdrop of the Canadian Rockies the resort is your Basecamp for unlimited adventures.

When Stage West began 30 years ago in an old Boat and Marine supply warehouse in Calgary, the theatre restaurant concept was already in decline in America. Poor quality food and numerous reruns of ”Pajama Tops” had left the industry floundering. But over the years with a concentration on quality food, excellent service and first-rate, original and Broadway-scale productions, the theatre, survived, grew and prospered. Unlike most restaurants, many of our employees have been here since opening. We have over a hundred season ticket holders who have been faithfully attending since we opened in 1982, and we now rival the Calgary Flames in season ticket sales with over 10,000 subscribers. We have introduced live theatre to thousands of Albertans from all over the province, providing new audiences for legitimate theatres like Theatre Calgary.

The original "people of the moutnains," the Stoney Nation is comprised of 3 First Nations Bands: Bearspaw, Chiniki, & Wesley. The name "Stoney" was given by white explorers, because of their technique using fire-heated rocks to boil broth in rawhide bowls. "Nakoda" means friend/ally.
