News: Varscona Theatre to receive $2 million provincial grant for makeover

Alberta’s Minister of Culture, Heather Klimchuk, will take to the stage at the Varscona Theatre’s debut production of Teatro la Quindicina’s Cause and Effect to announce a $2 million provincial grant for a makeover of the city-owned theatre building.

Along with $2 million from the City of Edmonton, this provincial grant is part of a $6 million transformation plan for the Varscona Theatre.  Plans to makeover the fifty-year old former fire hall have previously stalled, but this latest funding will be the start to a rejuvenation of one of Edmonton’s most beloved theatre spaces.
