Five Angels Theater
The Theater of The 52nd Street Project

The Project has built the first permanent home for the only professional theater company in New York City devoted to kids. Its current facility provides the room necessary for the children and their mentors to meet, learn, collaborate and explore further opportunities. The heart of the facility is the Five Angels Theater, which has been named in memory of the five people who have passed on, who were all enthusiastic supporters of the Project, the theater and/or the children of New York City: Laurie Beechman, Ron Black, Bill Foeller, Tom Gardner and Rusty Magee.

The 158-seat theater is a semi-flexible, black-box space with an extensive lighting plot and sound inventory. There is a spacious lobby featuring a concessions bar, seating areas, restrooms, a gallery and a terrace that can be used for events. There are two rehearsal rooms, one with installed dance floor and a mirrored wall. These are primarily reserved for the Project’s rehearsals and classrooms, but can be rented for an additional fee, depending on availability and needs of the renter. On the third floor, in addition to the conveniently designed technical booth, there are two dressing rooms with full bathrooms including showers.

The 52nd Street Project is proud to note that the entire facility—theater, technical booth, dressing rooms, restrooms, lobby, terrace, and rehearsal rooms — is fully ADA accessible. We have designated gender neutral restrooms. Our building is also a Green building, certified Leed Gold for its environmental friendly facilities.
