bizarre and most talented students. Student 
tickets begin at just $5. This season. Studio

SPINh. a play that will laierbe a pan of the 2010 
Paralympic celebrations on the world stage in

Roxy Theatre (10708-124 St) 

If theatrical oddities tickle your fancy, then look 
no further. This historical venue was erected in 
1938. originally as a picture-house. But like a 
contortionist, die Roxy changed shape and now 
sliowcases some of Edmonton's more edgy 

ami alternative thespian offerings. It's theatre for 
freaks! Students receive a discount and every Thesday 
is two-for-one. But if you act now. you can earn free 
tickets to shows by volunteering to usher or work at 
the concession. Catch the LRT (Light Rail Trolley) to 
Corona station and then board the 135 or 5 boxcars 
and you'll be taking in more human oddity than you 
can handle in a jiffy!
