Crest Theatre

Description

Housed in the restored 1925 Delray High School building, the Crest Theatre was dedicated in 1993 as the performing arts center of Old School Square.

The Crest Theatre fronts Swinton Avenue and offers professional shows, concerts and lectures from October to June. Entertainment includes musicals, comedy, concerts, dance, family shows and unique variety shows. The Cabaret Series (January-April) features Broadway’s hottest stars. The Robert D. Chapin Lecture Series (January-April) features notable speakers from around the country and a wide variety of topics on Thursdays at 2 pm. New for 2018 is the National Geographic Live Series (February-April), featuring 3 speakers with multi-media presentations on Thursdays at 7 pm.

The Crest Theatre building houses the Creative Arts School, which offers art, photography, digital imaging and writing classes in 6 studios and classrooms on the 2nd floor. The Crest also serves as an important venue for other organizations, schools and community groups to present their own productions and presentations.

Originally the high school auditorium, the Crest Theatre was re-designed as a charming, 323-seat, state-of-the-art performance venue combining the original high school color (blue) with warm burgundy and gold accents. The original stage was only 12 feet deep; therefore two stories of additional space were added during restoration to provide backstage, dressing room and storage areas. The original proscenium remains an important historic feature of the theater. The Crest provides a truly intimate entertainment experience.

The Crest Theatre provides accessibility for those who may need mobility or auditory assistance.
