The space, which will be available for rent, can be used by theater companies, dance groups and video premieres as well as for stage readings of plays, singer songwriters and meetings and receptions.
“The key is we want it to be a space where people can come up with their own ideas to create art in this community,” Sutton said.
Grand opening weekend will feature local artists and professionals in a variety of performances. A staged reading of a new play, a steel drumming workshop, a Funk Unplugged show with music legend Keith Harrison and dance classes are among the events.
A community open house with self-guided tours is scheduled for Sunday Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. – noon.
Each event has limited capacity and the public is encouraged to reserve a spot at victoriatheatre.com/arts-annex. Many of the events are free but some have a fee.
