Varscona renovations now complete


And we just can’t wait to share its magic with you. The rebuilt venue stays true to the theatre’s famous cozy intimacy, while giving our performers the best possible space to hone their craft. So, join us, take a seat and soar.

Not only does the new design heighten the performance experience, but it also encourages community interaction and expression. As a vibrant hub of theatrical activity, the new Varscona is bound to serve Edmontonians for decades to come, while providing the city with a notable tourist attraction.

To all our donors, sponsors, supporters and builders: We simply can’t thank you enough. We can now point to our stunning new theatre with pride, all because of the role you’ve played in rebuilding it.
