Please consider making a donation to the West End Fund.
We are seeking to raise $15,000 for improvements to the lighting, sound, and lobby.
This will help us to realize the full potential of the West End Theater as a modern theatrical space.
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 is 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 utilizes the space throughout the year for educational programming.
The adjacent apartment housing and offices are separate from the Theater and are not accessible to the theater or backstage spaces.
