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!

Theatre Network is currently rebuilding our venue, The Roxy Theatre, lost to fire in 2015. When open to the public, the building will include: a 200 seat mainstage theatre, a multi-functional blackbox performance space, a rehearsal hall, and 3 gallery spaces (one on each level of the building). These new gallery spaces will offer visual artists another space and opportunity to showcase and sell their works.

Call for Artist Submissions

Theatre Network is now accepting expressions of interests from artists who wish to be considered for future showings in The New Roxy Theatre. See below for more info, or download a PDF call for submissions here.

  • Artists may submit up to 10 works for consideration, but should submit no less than 3 works so the Curator is able to gain a reasonable understanding of your practice.
