Construction will continue in phases, subject to the amount of funds raised.
We will pause construction for a couple months to rehearse, construct sets, and perform, and then we'll be back at it in the fall of 2017, with plans to install the HVAC system and sprinkler system, eventually moving on to dressing rooms, seating, balcony, acoustic and technical upgrades, and a general facelift.

Here is what we really would like to get done in the next year:
Heating and cooling system, sprinkler system, balcony access remodel, second bathroom remodel, addition of the bar, purchasing of minimal lighting equipment, sound equipment, and acoustical improvements. Approximate cost: $120,000.

Here is what we would like to complete over the next few years: New theater seating, adding dressing rooms and a green room, purchasing a full set of theatrical lights, completing the Phase Two wiring necessary to run the lights, purchasing a projector and screen. Approximate cost: $160,000.

We found a home!

So far Virus Theater has raised over $90,000 since October 2015. COMPLETED! Installation of the steel sound booth and catwalk.

IN PROCESS, so we can open our doors in July 2017:

• design and fabrication of the new front gate for El Sol

• extending the front stage & building the side stages

• electrical work, emergency exit, and ADA compliance
