About Us

Who Are We?

Built as part of Burnaby South Secondary School, the Michael J Fox Theatre plays an important role in the life of the Burnaby community. Opened in 1993, this professional, community-style theatre offers a beautiful, practical and affordable venue for amateur and professional artists, enhancing the city’s already-rich cultural fabric. A steady schedule of multicultural performances, dance, theatre, music and other community events help make it one of the busiest venues in the Lower Mainland.

Theatre operations are overseen by an independent, non­-profit society. The Michael J Fox Theatre Society Board consists of community volunteers and functions independently of the Burnaby School Board.

In November of 1995, the Theatre was officially named after one of Burnaby’s most famous sons, Michael J. Fox, in recognition of his achievements in the arts and commitment to the community.

The Michael J Fox Theatre has become a focal point for culture, education, business and community in Burnaby and the Lower Mainland. It illustrates a focus on learning, opportunity and community and reflects an ongoing commitment to developing skilled, talented performers, and informed, inspired audiences and citizens.
