Renovations to benefit audiences, performers

A major renovation of the MacKinnon Building to start this spring will result in updated performance space and a new look.

The renovations aim to inspire the next generation of artists, musicians and performers who will shape the Canadian and international cultural landscape.

Work is expected to begin this month and be completed by fall 2020. The renovation will make the building fully accessible and provide new practice rooms and landscaped open space.

Through Canada Foundation for Innovation funding, the ImprovLab will get dedicated space in the current building courtyard, fulfilling the courtyard’s originally intended purpose as a theatre space.

In addition, the George Luscombe Theatre (above) and the Goldschmidt Room will receive significant updates.
