One of the attractions of the region is under reconstruction, and budget headaches will be washed away thanks to $ 3 million. If the Morrison government wins the election in May, Farrer member Susan Leigh has said a grant will be allocated to fund the project. The Roxy Theater will celebrate its centenary in 1930, and a two-stage reconstruction project of the grand old building will lead to its second century. “Ever since I came to represent Litan, I’ve mentioned Roxy in the most unusual places at the most unusual time,” Ms. Lay said. “But one message I always carried was the importance of this building in the hearts and minds of Litan.” Ms. Leigh praised the vision of the community to develop a school of performing arts to be based in the theater, and expressed hope that it would eventually compete with the National Institute of Dramatic Art. “The vision you all had was to make sure that young people don’t just come here to perform, but they come from here and perform in the world,” she said. “The importance of the performing arts, whether it’s music, drama or bands, in every age group, everywhere … can be a part of that.” The entire Roxy renovation project is estimated at $ 10 million to complete the first and second phases. Last year, the federal government allocated $ 1 million for the project from the Murray-Darling Basin Economic Development Program. An additional $ 3 million for the second stage includes the use of nearby shops to create seating areas, additional amenities and a second 70-seat theater to complement the existing theater.

It supports all aspects of our community.” The first phase of Roxy’s reconstruction is scheduled to be completed later this year.
