A Roof and a Renovation for the Puppet Theater

We originally had planned for this campaign to help fund the renovation of the theater in celebration of Black Cherry Puppet Theater’s 40th anniversary. Then when a violent windstorm ripped off part of our roof we had to dedicate all of our efforts toward its replacement. The roof is done and its run off is channeled to a new Earth friendly French Drainage system.

Now it’s time to make the theater work a little better, update the stage and lighting system, create proper offices, improved storage, a dedicated front box office space, and (Are you ready for this?) ANOTHER BATHROOM!

Anderson Design Studios have designed the new space and it is beautiful. Now, we have to bring this dream to reality, and we are asking for your help!

In March 2018, a violent storm hit Baltimore and ripped part of the roof off of Black Cherry Puppet Theater. The theater was purchased and renovated originally in 1996, but it was set for a new capital campaign to finish these renovations and make the theater a more usable space in 2020. Unfortunately, the storm hit ahead of this campaign, and a new roof, which was going to be part of that fundraising, is desperately needed immediately. Other avenues for funds to fix the roof have been, and continue to be, investigated. But in six months since the storm, Baltimore has seen a record amount of rain and storms and the temporary measures to keep water out of the building are not holding up, and the inside of the theater is being further damaged. So now, we are turning to you for help. No amount is too small.
