Updates on our new theater and our coming season of shows will be featured at Near West Theatre’s Annual Meeting this Thursday, Sept. 18, at 5:30 p.m. in the Atrium of the Gordon Square Arcade Building, 6516 Detroit Ave. We’ll also honor our 2013-2014 volunteers and show some brief snippets from among hours of footage collected by filmmaker Ted Sikora about the art, mission, process and spirit of Near West Theatre. A business meeting of the Board of Trustees will follow. All are welcome! Free parking is available in several Gordon Square Arts District lots and in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church lot, 6928 Detroit Ave.
Near West Theatre is grateful for ongoing programmatic support from the Ohio Arts Council, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, and Greater Cleveland Community Shares, and for special support from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeastern Ohio for equipment used by young people in technical workshops and other backstage experiences.
