IT’S YOUR GLOBE
The Prince Edward Building and home of Globe Theatre are a perfect pair to unite community, create connection and foster creativity.
Setting the stage for the next 100 years.
Our programming has been restricted by the physical limitations of an aging historic building that was originally designed as a post office.
Production and technological demands in 2023 are dramatically different than they were in 1981.
Accessibility and comfort of our patrons and performers is of increasing concern as The Globe Theatre competes with other performing arts and entertainment centers in North America to attract the best artists and to expand our audience base.
Working with local architects, P3A, we will transform The Globe Theatre into a world-class Performing Arts Center offering expanded opportunities and greater accessibility to performers, audiences, and students.
When our vision is realized in late 2024, renovations and enhancements will allow us to serve an additional 10,000 clients, making the total traffic to the historical theatre in excess of 60,000 patrons annually — and greatly enhancing the cultural appeal of the Regina Downtown.

The Globe Theatre Project continues through a difficult winter and spring bringing great promise for the completion of the roofing in May 2023. The Project team has dealt with unforeseen structural defects and remediation work towards the goal to provide the capacity and durability required to accommodate the Globe Theatre into the future.
Demolition work is complete, however, there are certain circumstances in the Renovation which require a bit of selective demolition to make way for new work.
Interior work is making considerable progress in the areas of structural steel and metalwork, sub-Floor upgrades, wall stud work as well as mechanical and electrical rough-ins. The new theatre space is now framed and the catwalk is installed above the theatre. It is very exciting to see the theatre space and the trap room taking shape.
The schedule for the project has been impacted by the pandemic and the unforeseen deteriorated concrete floors and roof structures. The team continues to coordinate with the City of Regina related to permits, Scarth Street and 11th Avenue work schedules, and any Heritage issues.
