Meet Kate

By Aly Boltman, Theatre Manager, Roxy Theatre

Meet Kate. Kate is an enigma. Kate is a survivor. Kate is a mould-breaker. Kate is a single mom and full-time college student in her mid-20s. Kate is a 4th generation Owen Sound-er. Kate has a wide network of friends and family, none of whom, just like her, had ever stepped foot in The Roxy Theatre before June of this year when Kate began working for us.
