First draft Designs for the New Theater
On September 10th, 2022, Tenino Young-at-Heart Theatre released their first draft of designs created with local architect Trent Hart of TovaniHart Architects. The building is designed to be built in three phases. The first phase would include a black box and foyer. The second phase would house a large area for a scene shop, costume shop, two full dressing rooms, and a music warm up and classroom. The third and final phase of building would have the administrative offices, art classroom, and large catering kitchen. Tenino Young-at-Heart Theater would not only have a building for the arts but a large community center with space for events, concerts, conferences, weddings, classes, galleries, and more.
We at Tenino Young-at-Heart Theatre want to hear from you, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact us through email or by mail.

In June of 2021, Tenino Young-at-Heart theatre (TYT) has purchased land and plans to build a theatre in Tenino. The property is located at the center of town in the Tenino Creative District, on Sussex between Keithahn and Ritter. An anonymous donor, TYT’s biggest fan, generously gifted the funds for the property purchase. Establishing the physical theater space will further embolden TYT’s mission of cultivating community, building relationships, and promoting growth through the joy of theatre.
