The New Magnetic Theatre!

Wonderful news! Approaching our 5th anniversary, The Magnetic Theatre has a new lease on life—a 10-year lease! By year’s end, Asheville’s home for original works will once again have a year-round home of its own: Magnetic 375, at 375 Depot Street, directly across from our former River Arts District digs, but bigger and better!

Steve and Wes Keull, owners of the building and the space they are graciously renovating for us, are creating an extraordinary opportunity for The Magnetic Theatre and our like-minded friends and associates in the locally grown performing arts community. Expect to see fresh theatrical firsts from veteran Magnetic playwrights Steven Samuels, Lucia Del Vecchio, John Crutchfield, Julian Vorus, and Jim Julien, and more of the great talents who live and work in this special city. Importantly, we’ll also host such Asheville favorites as “No She Didn’t,” LYLAS, The Feral Chihuahuas, Bombs Away Cabaret, 40 Fingers and a Missing Tooth, and others too numerous to mention! We can only hint at the wonders in store!

And, of course, there’s always the latest annual edition of The Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular!

But this will all cost money.
