The Campaign for Artists Repertory Theatre
Stories help us make sense of the world.
Theatre has long been a place where we gather to immerse ourselves in stories.
Stories that question our differences and foreground our connections.
Stories that help us talk to each other, listen to each other, and allow us to cry and laugh together.
As the lights come up, we rise with a better understanding of ourselves, of others, and our chance in the world.
The next phase in ART's development is the reinvention of our building.
Originally an Elks Lodge health club, the building has reached the end of its useful life.
A major gift in 2018 paid off our mortgage on the entire downtown block catalyzing our 2019 sale of the north half.
The $9 million received in the sale is now the lead investment for the reimagining of the remaining building.
The roof and a massive wood beam will rise to create a modern multiuse performing arts center with two theatres, four rehearsal halls, and collaborative spaces that will give rise to many new stories waiting to be shared.
