ABOUT DAD’S GARAGE THEATRE COMPANY:
Founded in 1995, Dad’s Garage Theatre Company has grown from a small volunteer led organization to a thriving mid-size theatre led by professional artistic and administrative staff that includes over 300 volunteers and performers. In 2013, Dad’s Garage which had entertained more than 30,000 people annually at their two-theatre facility in Inman Park, was forced to look for a new home as a result of development in the area. Temporarily staying at neighboring 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points, the Theatre continued to produce its own productions in addition to public events across Atlanta and the state, and at improv festivals across the continent. Dad’s Garage Theatre officially celebrated the opening of its new location the Old Fourth Ward on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015.
