YAKIMA, WA.--The show will go on! The Warehouse Theatre Company in Yakima thought they were going to have to cancel their holiday production of "A Christmas Carol" after the Allied Arts' headquarters in Gilbert Park was shutdown last week because of structural deficiencies.
They were left with 40 actors and no stage. But thanks to the owners of the "Akin Center Theatre" the company quickly found another place to practice and perform. Their show will open like they originally planned on Thanksgiving night.
"Absolutely, we're going to carry on," said the Gary Gresham, the Executive Director of the Warehouse Theatre Board. "We're completely dedicated to continuing to provide good quality theatre for the valley, and we see no reason why we can't do that no matter where we end up."
The theatre company said hundreds of people are involved in their productions, and they're currently looking for other performance and storage options. The company said they have a 65 year history with Allied Arts and hope they can continue. However, in the meantime, they're exploring prospects so they can keep the theatre alive.
