QUINCY, IL — After closing in 1982, the Washington Theater will be reopened to host the Quincy Dance Theatre.

Washington Theater will temporarily come back to life as a performance venue during a fundraising event Sept. 15-17 featuring the Quincy Dance Theatre.

Between 200 and 300 temporary seats will be installed that weekend to give audiences a chance to see the former vaudeville theater’s potential as a site for various cultural events if it can be renovated. This will mark the first event staged at the theater in 24 years.

The momentous event will be sponsored by the Friends of the Washington Theater.
