Neepawa Theatre Centre Board

Since 1988, the Roxy Theatre in Neepawa has been community owned and volunteer run. Each year, community members log over 1,500 hours taking tickets, working the concession and cleaning up after the show. This work allows the theatre to keep prices low and meet their mandate of providing inexpensive entertainment for the whole family. Volunteers represent a cross-section of the community and without their donation of time, the theatre would cease to operate.
