The Short North Stage is the local group of theatrical professionals who are taking on the task of converting the historic Garden Theater building back into a functional performance space. The group held their first “Garden Party” this evening for friends, family and neighbors to get to know the project a bit better.

After sitting practically unused for the last few decades, the Short North’s Garden Theatre is in disrepair. Walls are exposed, floors are unfinished, and the exterior lacks the shine of yesteryear.

Thankfully, the members of the Short North Stage have already embarked on a major fundraising campaign that will give the Garden Theater both a makeover and a modernization.

You can read more about the project in our recent interview with Peter Yockel, President of the Board at Short North Stage, here: Short North Stage to Reopen Garden Theatre as Arts Venue in 2012.

Photos of the interior and exterior of the Garden Theater can be found below.
