About The Centre
We manage the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts along with UpTown! Music & Dance, RMWB Community Programming, and Community use of both Holy Trinity and Father Mercredi High Schools. Our staff are:

The Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity High School includes a Proscenium Black Box Theatre, with seating for 350, a floor level playing space that is sprung throughout, state of the art theatre audio and lighting equipment, a short travel theatrical fly system and a full stage white PVC cyclorama for projection and special lighting effects.
The “Black Box” moniker refers to the space’s ability to be configured in layouts other than traditional proscenium theatre. We can accommodate:
Arena (In the Round)
Thrust (Seating on 3 sides)
Alley (Seating on 2 Sides)
Banquets (Complete Flat Floor) with Round or Rectangular Tables
Portable Platform Risers can be used to form a raised stage.
The facility also boasts various multi-purpose spaces, Piano, Foods and Fashion/Sewing Labs, Box Office and more. Our Multi-Purpose Spaces also have sprung floors, which make it perfect for your dance or drama rehearsals.
Our entire facility is accessible for low-mobility individuals, and holds a Silver Standard LEED Certification.
For Specific Technical Information, please contact our Office at 587-960-4112.
The creation of the facility was funded with the assistance of Suncor Energy and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo who donated $4.5 Million to incorporate a Performing Arts Centre in Holy Trinity High School’s Design.
The Centre will serve Holy Trinity and the Fort McMurray Catholic School District as a major instructional space, with many specialized programs focused on Visual and Performing Arts; and as a part of the Regional Municipality’s continuing support, the Centre will be a cultural hub open for community use.
