Support Historic Preservation

Making a preservation gift today ensures timely, important structural maintenance and technology upgrades can be made to Austin’s oldest theatres. Your tax-deductible gift will protect history, enhance safety, and more through ongoing projects including:

Immediate Repairs for Stateside Theatre

The Stateside Theatre north wall requires time-sensitive repairs to fix erosion to its façade. The stucco’s erosion allows water into the theatre, causing damage to the interior of the building and to the stage. With the construction of the new building going up at 721 Congress Avenue that will share a wall with the theatre, this is the last time we’re able to access this wall to complete this vital project.

Technology Upgrades and Box Office Expansion

In addition to the imperative exterior work, your gift can help carefully install upgraded Wi-Fi throughout both theatres while maintaining historic accuracy and expand the physical box office structure for a better patron experience when seeing shows. These updates positively affect many aspects of your theatre experience. Most importantly, they will enhance both the safety and ease of attending a show – reducing lines, increasing seat access, and improving staff response rates. Wi-Fi updates can even make way for more involved and technologically advanced show experiences on our historic stage.
Your support is essential to completing these preservation projects. Thank you.
