Creating a Vibrant Takoma Theatre
Our Eight Goals
- Save the building! We will never have another Takoma Theatre — ever.
- Raise public and private funds for its acquisition, renovation and operation.
- Renovate the auditorium, lobby area, and entrance to preserve the original design while adding new spaces to better accommodate modern theatre uses.
- Hire professional management to develop sustaining theatre-related programs and new arts, educational, and community uses for the site.
- Develop partnerships with several arts and education organizations that can use the Theatre on an on-going basis and provide performance space for other large and small companies.
- Encourage use of the theatre by youth-oriented programs and provide a range of educational arts-related programs for people of all ages.
- Develop services to support small performance groups and help them develop into stronger companies.
- Integrate the Theatre into the surrounding community by establishing it as a center for community cultural activities, and a catalyst for local economic development.
