The theatre company has been preparing for its move for over five years. The staff will begin conducting business in the new facility at the end of November. Rehearsals for the cast of the inaugural production, August: Osage County, will begin on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. The production will open during Everyman's Grand Opening Week, which will occur from January 14 – January 20, 2013.
Everyman Theatre was founded in 1990 and has called Charles Street its home for 18 years. Before that, the company performed in different spaces throughout the city. Twenty-two years later, the company now produces six productions every season and hosts over 4600 subscribers to every show.
Bank of America and the Harold Dawson Trust generously donated the former Town Theatre to Everyman for just $1. In 2006, the theatre embarked on an $18 million campaign to renovate the then vacant space into the new Everyman. The theatre began formal construction in April, 2011.
Everyman will continue to produce on Charles Street through the end of its current production, Heroes by Tom Stoppard. The production is scheduled to close on Sunday, December 2nd. Single Carrot Theatre is slated to move into Everyman's former Charles Street in early 2013.
