Fair Oaks Theatre Festival
WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND LOYALTY!
We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and loyalty, especially during the present circumstances. We look forward to welcoming patrons back to the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival!
Hello Loyal Fair Oaks Supporters!
The perennial theme of the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival is Keeping The Dream Alive. This year that theme is more appropriate than ever before. In the midst of this pandemic that has shut down theatres across the country, we have good news!
The design for our new stagehouse and amphitheater is nearly complete, with the demolition of our existing stage and storages scheduled for April and new construction starting soon after that. Our new venue will continue to be "Theatre Under the Stars," but we will also have a smaller, indoor area for winter use.
Packing up has been a stroll down memory lane and we look forward to making new memories with you when we re-open.
THE FAIR OAKS THEATRE FESTIVAL IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE!
Tony Sestito and Robert Irvin’s dream to completely renovate the Veterans Memorial amphitheater will become a reality!
The Fair Oaks Park District recently voted to include the amphitheater stage house remodel in the Measure J project. The funding for the project will be approximately $5,900,000.
Our facility upgrades to date include the box office and outdoor garden lobby, our concession stand, merchandising area, patron restrooms, light and sound bridge, and control room. We are now beginning our final phase!
Until our new modernized Stage house is ready for use, we are discussing alternative performance venues. We are going to, "Make it Work."
Along with planning how to bring you theater over the next few years, it will be our job to prepare the existing buildings for demolition… Removing all lighting sound equipment and vacating our storage facilities. This will include costumes, sets, and prop storage units.
This is a very big project and we will need your help. We look forward to your continued support as our operating expenses will actually increase. Look for us during this year's Big Day of Giving!
We promise to keep you updated on the progress of our construction project and performances. We are beyond excited to welcome you to see our inaugural season as soon as we possibly can!
