Put yourself in good company.
Help us build The New Keegan Theatre.
The Keegan Theatre has always been about people. The community of actors, directors and designers who define us. The many donors who have sustained us over the years. And the audiences whose growth has been a constant vote of confidence. We are truly in good company!
Now these folks and the broader Washington community are helping us renovate and purchase the theater we call home. Several large donors have put the project in motion. But relying on just a few wouldn’t be The Keegan Way. That’s why we’re inviting our thousands of friends and supporters to be the heart of our vision.
The Good News:
The New Keegan Theatre is on the way! Thanks to generous donations, we are well over halfway to our $4 million dollar goal to fully modernize the Church Street Theater.
Together, we need to raise the rest.
The new Keegan Theatre will give us the facility we need to best serve our audiences, our neighborhood, and the artists who create our shows. The renovations will:
- Open up the lobby with outdoor glass vestibule and three-story contemporary design, while retaining the unique and historic external beauty of the existing building
- Add modern new restrooms – on main lobby and upper mezzanine levels!
- Make the theater ADA-accessible
- Install more comfortable seats in a pleasing configuration with added legroom
- Upgrade lighting, sound, rigging and temperature-control systems
- Expand the space behind the stage to better accommodate production development and staging
- Fully excavate an additional basement level
- Provide classroom and rehearsal space
The New Keegan Theatre will give us the facility we need to best serve our audiences, our neighborhood, and the artists who create our shows. But a big challenge remains.
