To say this community project has taken a long time to complete would be an understatement. We were first approached in 2004 to help a long established community playhouse find a new and improved home in downtown Redding. Over a decade later and with much pro-bono work by Trilogy, it appears that this beloved institution will finally open its doors on a new venue in late 2017. Relocating to a building previously designed as a therapeutic rehabilitation center – complete with indoor swimming pool – has not been without its challenges. The end result, however, with an greatly enlarged and more acoustically adept theater space, large reception hall and ample parking, should be well worth the wait. We certainly can’t wait for that first performance, and neither can the community who has waited so long for this to become a reality.
