Support coldtowne

Thank you so much for your interest in helping to support ColdTowne Theater! 

A little bit of background on what’s going on: Like many arts and performance organizations across the country, ColdTowne was hit hard by 2020 and COVID-19. We not only lost the ability to produce live shows and classes for an extended period of time, but we also lost the lease to the black box theater that we called home for 15 years. For the past year and a half, we’ve been fortunate to partner with a handful of local rented venues for shows and classes and keep things moving. 

As of October 2022, we have officially secured a lease on a new location at 1700 E 2nd Street opening November 3rd. But we still need your help! With our new central location, ample free parking, and bar, we hope to build back business and continue fundraising in preparation for securing a permanent space before the end of our lease. 

Right now, ColdTowne is in a critical period where we have an opportunity to rebuild in an entirely new space. We have big dreams of outfitting our new theater with brand-new amenities to serve our students, performers and audience members. Unfortunately with supply chain issues and the rising cost of construction in Austin, time is of the essence. The lease we have is for 14 months. We need to raise a lot of money very quickly, both to secure a more permanent space, and to afford renovations to make it work as a theater.

 It’s an ambitious undertaking, and we need your support. We’ll soon be launching a fundraising campaign in order to bring this dream to life. In the meantime, truly every dollar helps.
