Our renovation


We need you

The renovation process has begun! We are transforming our historic church into a beautiful and functional space for our audience, actors and neighbors in the King community. 

We have raised about 89% to our $2.4 million goal. Now we need you.

Contribute today to help us grow our theatre and make it last.

December 13, 2017 - All major systems are in - including updated electrical and a new HVAC system that will allow for quiet, cool AC during the warmest months.   As Artistic Director Brian Weaver stated about "Phase 1" on a tour with supporters "Now we just need to make it look pretty." 

October 5, 2017 - Oregon's Daily Journal of Commerce's gives a peak behind the Playhouse doors and words on the renovation from Brian Weaver and our partners SERA Architects, Colas Construction and Shapiro Didway Landscape Architecture.

September 25, 2017 - The office space downstairs is shaping up!  The space for our Development Director Elena Hein gets some sun in the photo on the right.

September 14, 2017 - Here is the view from the kitchen to the green room and a shot of the windows to our new conference room!

September 5, 2017 - We are "beaming" with pride!  The new structural beam that carries the weight of 1/3 of the church is in and looking strong!  Framing has gone up on the hallway to the bathrooms, the dressing rooms and a few of the offices.

August 25, 2017 - One of the most anticipated improvements has started - the bathrooms!  Bigger, better, and more for everyone!  We've also braced up the big support beam downstairs to give us strength. 

"Before" - A few shots of the Playhouse stripped down and ready for renovation, plus one photo of a particularly rough looking beam that will get some special attention in the coming weeks.   (B&W photo credit: Matthew Kerrigan)
