You’ve been asking for it! And it’s finally about to happen. Thanks to our friends at Near Southside, Inc. and at City Hall, the parking area in front of Stage West is getting a make-over!
What does this mean for the future?
A beautiful, level, fully accessible parking area and entryway.
What does it mean for the next few months?
Once construction starts, there will be non-production days where the only entrance to our facility is at the rear of the building. If you need us on those days, please pre-arrange your visit by calling our box office 817-784-9378.
This will mostly affect walk-up ticket buyers, students, actors, and staff. If you forget, it’ll be quickly apparent if you can’t come through the front. Drive round to the back. We’ll post the phone number on that door as well and come back to let you in.
During performance hours, the construction team has pledged to make an entry way through the front.
When is this starting?
Start date should be October 1, and we expect that it will finish up by late November.
How can you help?
Plan extra time for your arrival. It is estimated to be a 6-8 week project. Fingers crossed!
Finally, a special thank you to all of you who wrote letters of support to the city regarding this project. You had a major impact on the success of this being given a green light!
