PERFORMING ARTS COMPLEX PLANNED FOR 2018
Southern Rep Theatre has found a new home!
Southern Rep Theatre, Rose Community Development Corporation, and Alembic Community Development will launch the Bayou Treme Center campus development project, which will renovate 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 Bayou Treme Center 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 65-seat Lagniappe Stage convertible to a cabaret or black box configuration, an Outdoor Stage for pre-performance activities, administrative offices, rehearsal room, and a bar/café.
Construction is expected to begin in 2017, with a projected opening date in 2018.
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
