The Roxy Theatre, owned and operated by the Owen Sound Little Theatre, is the premier regional destination for live theatre and music performances. Built circa 1913, this historic soft-seat opera house accommodates 400 people, and is located in Owen Sound’s historic downtown core.
The Owen Sound Little Theatre is a not-for-profit charitable organization established in 1961. The membership is comprised of hardworking volunteer members from very diverse backgrounds who produce four productions annually – a fall musical and three non-musical plays.
Owen Sound Little Theatre’s mission is to be a quality theatre company that consistently entertains and challenges while stimulating participation in the arts through dynamic artistic and cultural programming with broad appeal. We engage a diverse regional population and offer numerous opportunities for the public to visit us at The Roxy, a permanent home for the Owen Sound Little Theatre and a vibrant regional centre for arts and culture.
In addition to Owen Sound Little Theatre productions, we offer The Roxy Series, a Professional Presenting Series showcasing the best in contemporary Canadian music, theatre and comedy, as well as The Roxy Young Company that aims to create a respectful, creative community of young people that participate in the arts. It includes classes, camps and shows. The Roxy Star Company is a new opportunity for adults living with complex needs including intellectual, development or physical disabilities, allowing them to participate and perform in theatre related projects. Participants will play drama games, learn acting skills, dances and songs.
The Roxy is also regularly rented to concert promoters and artists throughout Ontario and numerous community groups for special events and recitals. You can read all about renting The Roxy here. If interested please contact the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
