Three Unique Events to Support Renovations at the 24th Street Theatre

Stories in Dance, Patrick Landeza Hawaiian Slack Key Guitarist, Screening of cult classic “The Room”

Over the last 40 years the 24th Street Theater, truly a Center for the Performing Arts, has offered musicals, children’s theatre, lectures, film screenings, comedy, drama, and experimental and original works by local authors. Built in 1929 (designed by Dean and Dean) our grand old gal needs an update. Performers in our community have rallied, organizing the following performances to help raise funds to replace the seats, carpet, stage, signage, and roof. Please support the renovation by attending an event, donating, or sponsoring a seat.
