You Can Help
Virus Theater is working to manifest the dream of the El Sol Performing Arts Center!
Our primary fundraising drive for support of our home, The El Sol theater, welcomes individual donations from our amazingly supportive community. For those interested in making a year-end donation to Virus Theater (a Federal 501c3 nonprofit organization), or any time during the year, please enjoy our Website, attend our productions to learn more about what we've been doing, and what we're planning for the near and distant future.
Virus Theater founder and Artistic Director Teresa Dahl-Bredine purchased El Sol Theater in Silver City in the spring of 2015. In the fall of 2015, Virus Theater began fundraising efforts to support the renovation of El Sol.
The El Sol Theater was built in 1934. After many years of use as a movie house in downtown Silver City, including years of being alternately open and closed for business, El Sol closed permanently in 2002. The building has been and continues to be a Silver City landmark, featuring southwestern painting on its two-story exterior on Bullard Street in the heart of our downtown district.
Closed for nearly two decades, El Sol Theater is ready for renovations and a new life.
