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!

Bust

“They say the fire’s still burning. Underground. Could be years ‘til it’s out.”

Pitch-perfect Pinter-esque humour with surprising heart

Paula Simons, Edmonton Journal

WORLD PREMIERE

Three months after the Fort McMurray Fire, a controversial call at a Peewee hockey game propels two couples into dangerous territory. A heartfelt dark comedy about two families, whose lives are intrinsically tied to Alberta’s boom and bust economy.

Featuring: Lora Brovold, Brandon Coffey, Louise Lambert & Christopher Schulz
Directed by 
Bradley Moss
Set & Costume Designer: Cory Sincennes
Lighting Design: Scott Peters
