May 26 @ 7:00 pm

Since January 1, 2021, the historic venue has been temporarily closed due to the ongoing pandemic. The Board of Trustees of Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc. and president & CEO, Randy McKay are working on plans for a safe reopening. In the meantime, the theatre is hosting an online fundraiser on Wednesday, May 26 at 7:00 p.m. Funds raised will be used to support theatre operations as we move toward a safe and swift reopening.

The big event is online only and features a live and silent auction, hosted by auctioneer extraordinaire Ben Farrell of Custom Benefit Auctions, and performances by local favorites Chatham Rabbits, John Howie, Nnenna Freelon and many more! Catering partners NanaSteak and Parker & Otis will be providing heat and eat dinners and fun snack packs available for pick up on the day of the event.
