City Centre Stage debut delayed

Delays in getting a building inspection has resulted in the postponement of Central Alberta Theatre’s first production at City Centre Stage.

Delays in getting a building inspection has resulted in the postponement of Central Alberta Theatre’s first production at City Centre Stage.

Sexy Laundry, a comedy by Michele Riml, is now expected to open on Friday, Oct. 14, instead of Oct. 7.

The show will run to Oct. 23 at the new live theatre venue on 49th Street, which was renovated from the former Uptown Cinemas movie house.

While City Centre Stage was officially opened earlier this month, some last-minute work had to be done to satisfy fire codes, said CAT’s executive director William Trefry.

This included a new exit and ramp being installed in the large theatre.

The builder needs the door inspected while construction is in progress, so adjustments can be made, if necessary.

But Trefry said the busy city inspections office could not commit an inspector to come down.

On Thursday, the final inspection was finally scheduled for the middle next week.

Trefry believes the work will be done by the time Sexy Laundry opens on Oct. 14.
