uAlberta Student Union announces $11M revitalization of campus theatre

August 23, 2016

The University of Alberta Students’ Union has announced that it plans to revitalize the nearly 50-year-old Myer Horowitz Theatre through an $11M renovation. “Campus needs a modern theatre, and just patching it up isn’t enough,” says the union's general manager Marc Dumouchel. “The arts are a key element to developing well-rounded graduates, and the theatre is a key link between campus and the broader community.” The union intends to cover $7M of the costs through a fundraiser titled Friends of Myer Horowitz, and the AB government is reportedly contributing $40K through a Community Facility Enhancement Program grant.
