Merry-Go-Round Playhouse introduces a new performance venue, the West End Theater. The 650-seat theater is located at 217 Genesee Street, in the former West Middle School.
The space features two large rooms backstage for use as dressing rooms, as well as a 400 square foot lobby. There is handicap accessible seating and facilities, and the space will be WiFi enabled. The primary goal of the West End Theater is to provide quality artistic opportunities for the local and regional youth and families of Auburn and Cayuga County.
The Merry-Go-Round Youth Theatre will utilize the space throughout the year for educational programming.
The former West Middle School is being developed into apartment housing, but these areas will be separate from the Theater and will not be accessible to the theater or backstage spaces.
