Council is excited to offer virtual tours of the Roxy providing an exclusive peek behind the curtain of the ongoing redevelopment at the historic theatre. As a cherished heritage-listed site, the Roxy holds a special place in the hearts of Leeton Shire residents.

The virtual tours will be produced on a fortnightly basis to showcase the significant progress being made at the Roxy Community Theatre, allowing the community to stay up-to-date via their mobile device or computer. The tours will not only highlight the physical progress on-site but also feature interviews with key personnel involved in the redevelopment, offering a behind-the-scenes perspective on the vision, challenges, and aspirations driving the transformation.

Regrettably, in light of recent recommendations from SafeWork NSW, the regulator for the construction industry, physical site tours of the construction area are to be postponed until the site is deemed safe and free from construction activity. Council will aim to resume these in the new year by allowing visitors access to specific areas as they become less busy.

The virtual tours will serve as a safe and informative alternative during this interim period and will also allow those who were previously unable to participate in the physical site tours, such as children and those with disabilities, to witness the theatre’s progress.

"We are delighted to offer these virtual tours as a window into the exciting transformation of the Roxy Community Theatre. The interviews with key project personnel add a personal touch, and we hope this experience will bring the community together in anticipation of the Roxy's reopening in mid-2024," stated Roxy Project Director Katherine Herrmann.

Residents can access the virtual tours through the Leeton Shire Council website at www.leeton.nsw.gov.au and via social media.
