Lights, Costumes, Actors!


Applegate Regional Theatre, Inc. (ART, Inc.), an all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit theater, was founded in 2004. In 2013, the theater found its permanent location in west Eugene/Fern Ridge, Oregon– bordering Veneta, Oregon. The board of Applegate Regional Theatre has transformed the campus of Central Elementary School and made it the home of all of their rehearsals and performances. The remodel of old classrooms has provided the theatre with rooms for costume, education, props, tech, and a green room. In addition to the converted classrooms, the school’s gym has been reconstructed into a welcoming theater. Applegate Regional Theatre has a history of performing family-friendly inter-generational shows and even original scripts. The theater campus is becoming a regional Rural Arts Center, incorporating the Applegate Art Guild, and Studio 7, offering instruction in crafts, art, plain air painting, voice, and several musical instruments.

ART, Inc. has put in years of effort to serve the greater Lane County community. In order to continue all that Applegate Regional Theatre has created, we greatly appreciate any contributions to paying off a balloon payment of $200,000 by the end of 2022. Any donation is appreciated!
