Tara’s schoolhouse is situated on two acres in North Boulder, at 4180 Nineteenth Street, on the northeast corner of Riverside Avenue. In 2012/2013, we were given a generous donation to build a two-story addition to our formerly detached movement space, incorporating a new science lab and two new classrooms. Further fundraising allowed us to complete the project using “green” materials and construction methods. The students themselves raised $12,000 toward this much-needed addition to the campus. The finished building was inaugurated at the beginning of the 2013/2014 school year.
Our extended campus includes the Kelly Barn on Sumac Avenue, where dance rehearsals often take place, and the historic 155-seat Nomad Playhouse on Quince Avenue, also within easy walking distance, where all of Tara’s plays and musicals are rehearsed and performed.
In 2014, we were presented with the extraordinary opportunity to purchase the playhouse at a substantially reduced price. Thanks to a major fundraising effort and the generosity of many individual donors as well as the State Historical Fund, Tara has now assumed ownership and management of this beloved theatre. We had long dreamed of having a permanent performance home, the essential physical component of the profound work that we do in drama. Ownership of the Nomad will ensure the sustainability of our performing arts program and allow us to support other fine community theatre and events.
