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!

"Don’t try to understand a language you’ve never heard before. Just listen to it. Enjoy the beauty and symmetry of it. Can you do that?"

Michael DC McKinlay’s Penguins tells the story of a team of research scientists studying a rookery of penguins in the Antarctic. What began as an experiment in controlling and ultimately altering the migratory instincts of the birds, is slowly revealed as a more sinister attempt to alter the greatest of instincts: survival of a species. Part of Plays in Progress.
