Raise the Roof!

The Turnage Theatre roof structure must be replaced. Structural reports show the entire structure must be replaced as trusses are in imminent failure. Leaks are becoming more prominent throughout the front of the building which you will notice.  Please consider a donation to save the Historic Turnage Theatre’s beautiful spaces today.

The Clock is Ticking.

The roof structure and surface beyond a patch to the top surface and the insertion of an interior brace was not addressed in the restoration of the theatre in the mid-2000s. The roof structure (from the inside out, trusses and all) must be completed over the next several months.

Every Penny Counts.

As of January 2020, AOP has raised just over $1 million and must raise another $300,000 to pay for the full roof replacement that is required to avoid a catastrophic failure of the roof.
