The Courtyard Stage

       In just a few years, the Playhouse has become a busy place! In 2015 we realized we needed a little more room to host our Playhouse School classes, our rehearsals, our receptions, and our live music. 

       We also had some much-needed repairs and drainage work to tackle on this historic 1930's church, an Old Cloverdale landmark recognized in the National Trust's This Place Matters campaign. 
        The Courtyard Stage project combined major, much-needed facility improvements with attractive new features including a new 28 foot wooden stage and paved, ADA accessible entry points to the Playhouse School and rehearsal space.

       We are grateful to the J.K. Lowder Family Foundation and the Alabama State Council on the Arts for giving this project the start it needed, and equally grateful to Goodwyn Mills and Cawood and Foshee Design & Construction for bringing this idea to life.  Many thanks to Wind Creek Hospitality for generously joining our major Courtyard Stage Sponsors in May 2016!
