Despite almost a year of negotiation with Artown regarding the transfer of the Lear Theater, we are disappointed to report that we have reached an impasse with Artown concerning the purchase of the building.
SSPA’s long term strategic plan still includes the goal of acquiring or building a mid-sized, centrally located theater to grow our programs. Unfortunately, it now appears that venue will not be the Lear Theater. As we move forward with our long-term growth, we will continue to look for a space where we can create a new destination for performing arts in the Truckee Meadows.
SSPA wishes to thank the dedicated professionals on our development team who devoted many, many hours to create a viable project. We also are grateful to everyone in the theater community and beyond who expressed their support for our effort to transform the Lear Theater into the community asset it deserves to be. Stay tuned to this space for more information on all SSPA projects as we continue to grow our productions, classes and camps.
