RAAC recently shifted its venue for indoor productions to the historic movie house known as the Little Washington Theatre at 291 Gay Street, Washington, VA. The move was precipitated by safety concerns with our previous quarters across the street in the repurposed church affectionately known as the RAAC Theatre. A recent structural engineering study for Rappahannock County identified multiple problems with the old church building including personal safety. With reluctance, the RAAC Board decided to seek another venue. By good fortune, the owner of the Little Washington Theatre, Nancy Raines, generously offered her theater to RAAC for public events. The decision, though hard, was clear and we’re now enjoying our “new” RAAC Theatre at 291 Gay Street.
One of the upsides our new venue is that we now have a bathroom for attendees! Performers, actors and presenters also have a green room off the stage—another improvement. And, we no longer have to set up chairs before each event! Currently we’re upgrading the theater’s sound system. Other improvements will be made over time.
Our new venue—the RAAC Theatre (a/k/a Little Washington Theatre)—is where we perform plays, screen movies, host RAAC talks, and present in-house concerts. Check the Events page for what’s on!
