Support the Civic's Staging the Future capital campaign and we'll etch your name on a brick in our new outdoor courtyard. It's a great way to "step" up for Akron and be recognized for your generosity!

The Akron Civic Theatre's Staging the Future campaign signifies the exciting future that awaits us!

To date, we have secured $8.2 million toward our goal of $8.5 million. The project encompasses:

  • Restoration of the Whitelaw building on the Civic's immediate north side, which will become home to our intimate new 200+ seat performance space and is expected to be ready to open in October.
  • A new three-window box office, an elevator and a large outdoor deck for mingling before and after shows on the immediate south side of the theater.
  • Restoration of the Grand Lobby and Entry Arcade to bring back the stunning original 1929 beauty and elegance.
  • Implementation of our outdoor public art project, which includes installation of a large video wall and two large-scale murals on our sweeping exterior walls, which will make the outside of the theater as much of an asset as the inside of the theater.

Every donation of $250 or more also earns you the choice of a limited-edition Civic lapel pin or pendant designed by Don Drumm!
