A standing ovation goes to…

Jan 26, 2015

Since suffering a tragic fire at the Roxy Theatre on January 13th many community members, individual donors, artists and businesses have stepped up to help the Roxy Theatre and Theatre Network rise from the ashes.
The Theatre Network staff and board give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has leant support and reached out to us. A tragedy can have the ability to rally people together. Our supporters have let us know that what Theatre Network does is important to Edmontonians and Canadians alike.
We give a standing ovation to…
All of the individual donors on our canadahelps.org page. We have had donations from artists, subscribers and friends from all across Canada. On Canada Helps alone these supporters have helped to raise over $17,000 in support of Theatre Network. Bravo!
