The End of an Era

Theatre Banshee Leaves Its Home in Burbank

After producing for more than twenty years in our venue on Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, Theatre Banshee is sorry to announce that we were priced out of our theatrical home. This past fall we were it with a sudden and drastic increase in our rent. The new level of rent being demanded was no longer tenable for a small non-profit arts organization, and as a result Banshee had to move out December 1.

This is NOT the end for Theatre Banshee. While were are heartbroken to have to leave the space which we worked so hard to build, the Banshee spirit lives on. We are evaluating other projects in other venues. As soon as we set our sights on our next production, we will be eager to share it with our the wonderful patrons who have supported Banshee these many years.

Please check back with our site. When we have news of what's coming next, we'll post it here.

Again, our thanks for the love and support which so many have brought to The Banshee during the extraordinary era in which it was our home.
