Located in the hills of the northwest corner of Calgary, Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility is a gathering space for the community. The flexible 300-seat studio theatre is designed as a multipurpose venue to support a wide variety of performances and events, including community theatre, professional productions, and meetings and events.
