Help us bring the new Roxy to life

On January 13, 2015 Theatre Network lost their home of The Roxy Theatre – which left a hole in the arts community and on 124 Street in Edmonton.

Now, Theatre Network is working to bring a New Roxy Theatre back where it belongs.

We need your generosity to Rebuild the Roxy Theatre. With your financial support the New Roxy will rise from the ashes!

Sarah and Gabrial

A big-bad-beautiful-dream mood piece.

Red Deer Advocate

Formerly titled A Trip to the FarmSarah and Gabrial is a musical mystery with the story revolving around Luke Dawe, the legendary prairie Casanova, who disappeared in 1904. Seventy-five years later a film maker, Sarah, goes to Dawe’s old homestead in search of material to make a film and finds a scientist/inventor who claims to be Luke’s wife living there. The collision of time periods, the hostility of the townspeople, a supernatural storm and Sarah’s determination to discover the truth about Luke’s disappearance form the elements of the play.
