The Campaign for Ashland Schine's Theatre

According to the National Trust for Historic Places, the average theater project costs between $5 and $30 million. The combined public/private budget to bring the Ashland Schine's Theatre back to life so it can be the site of many more happy memories is $3.8 million—far less than the cost of similar restoration projects.

  • Campaign efforts to raise $3 million in philanthropic contributions were launched in January 2020
  • $2.3 million will be used to complete the interior renovations and refurbishment and to purchase the necessary furniture, fixtures, and equipment (with $130,000 for contingencies)
  • $500,000 will be used to help defray the anticipated operating expenses for the first three years (HVAC costs, electricity, and ongoing maintenance)

A priority will be placed on contracting with area vendors and suppliers to complete the renovation project. Although campaign efforts were temporarily halted in March 2020 due to COVID-19, work on the exterior of the building was completed in December 2020. The Ashland Schine's Theatre Campaign Steering Committee reconvened in May 2021 with renewed energy and dedication to ensure the successful conclusion of this campaign.

The Theatre's Board of Directors has set a goal to have a grand preview reopening for donors and supporters of the Campaign for Ashland Schine's Theatre on July 4, 2022!
