The Warren County Economic Development Authority has revealed the tenant moving into the former Avtex Administration Building in Front Royal on Feb. 21.
The company, the Selah Theatre Project, will offer drama classes and produce two original theater productions and two community theater productions each year.
“We are so pleased to find this space,” said La Tasha Do’zia-Earley, artistic director of the Selah Theatre Project. “We were in search of a facility that was a bit larger and better able to accommodate our classwork and our small productions. This is the perfect venue.”
The company took out a 12-month lease starting March 1 from the EDA-owned property at 400 B Kendrick Lane.
Selah first moved to Warren County in 2013 from its location on the Loudoun Street pedestrian mall in Winchester due to a lack of interest in the area. The theater moved in with dance studio Tap Etc. at 23 S. Royal Ave.
The not-for-profit’s new location, adjacent to the EDA’s headquarters, will provide more room for productions and class sessions.
“We are happy to have the Selah Project as a tenant,” said Jennifer McDonald, executive director of the EDA. “I think this will offer them a great space for their classes and productions.”
