PERFORMING ARTS COMPLEX PLANNED FOR 2018-19
Southern Rep Theatre has found a new home!
Southern Rep Theatre, Rose Community Development Corporation, and Alembic Community Development are part of the Rose Collaborative, a development project renovating the long-vacant former St Rose de Lima Church into a hub for the performing arts in the city and a cultural anchor on the Bayou Road corridor.
The centerpiece of the campus will be a 13,400 square foot theater complex operated by Southern Rep Theatre, New Orleans’ premiere theatre company. The theater complex includes a 125-seat Mainstage proscenium, a cabaret stage with bar/café, an Outdoor Stage for pre-performance activities, administrative offices, and education & rehearsal room
Construction began in 2017, with a projected opening date in 2018/19.
DEAR PATRONS, FRIENDS, AND SUPPORTERS
You have stood by us and supported us, inspired and challenged us, but always you have remained steady, stalwart, and strong. For that we will be forever grateful. As we look to the future we will be calling on you to be part of the cornerstone as we build our new home. We know you are as ready as we are.
– Aimée Hayes, Producing Artistic Director
