Boise’s Stage Coach Theatre needs a new place to call home

Jennifer Gonzalez

Boise’s Stage Coach Theatre is looking for a new home – and they need your help.

For 14 years, they’ve been in a small corner at the Hillcrest Shopping Center on Overland Road, and leased the space on a month-to-month basis, with the knowledge that the landlord could secure a more permanent tenant.

Well, that time has come, and they have 30 days to find a new place to call home, says SCT Public Relations Manager Kim Sherman-Labrum

“If someone has a building that is languishing, we could come in, and pay taxes for the owner,” Sherman-Labrum says. “It prevents it from remaining empty or being vandalized, and the donation is tax-deductible.”

Theater members have been reaching out to the community and keeping their ears and eyes open, for any possible space to relocate. They occupy around 5,000-square-feet currently, yet a building that size, or bigger would work, said Sherman-Labrum.

In its 30th season, the SCT still is planning its British farce, Bedside Manners, to open Jan. 14, despite an unknown location for that production.

“The theater community is very giving. We are continuing to move forward with our show,” she says.

If you know of a building the SCT can move into, please call 208.342.2000 or e-mail stagecoachtheatre@gmail.com.

  1. I have emailed Kim with a suggestion to look into the old Armory. It has the kind of space a theatre could use and may fit into the City’s Blueprint for that area. It would be a challenge but the East End Neighborhood Association could help with Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant funds and help. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for SCT.
