The Adventure Theatre at Glen Echo Park celebrated its grand reopening on October 15 after suffering from significant fire damage in March 2018. The event included a ribbon cutting, tours of the theater, and remarks from the Adventure Theatre and Senator Van Hollen.
While the theater was able to continue to run performances during construction, significant renovations were needed on the back house and rehearsal spaces. Donohoe Construction worked with JBG Smith and additional subcontractors to fix the damages, donating time and materials to the project at discounted rates. “The outpouring of support and love was just unbelievable,” said Leon Seeman, Adventure Theatre’s Managing Director.
“We want to make sure that this treasure is available for generations to come,” remarked Senator Van Hollen, who used to attend the theater with his children. “It really is a gem in our community.”
