Crest Theater

The Crest Theatre is housed in the restored 1925 Delray High School building on the Old School Square campus in Delray Beach. It was dedicated in 1993 as the performing arts center of Old School Square.

Originally the high school auditorium, the Crest Theatre was redesigned as a charming, 323-seat, state-of-the-art facility combining the original high school color (blue), with warm burgundy and gold accents. The original stage was only 12 feet deep; therefore two stories of additional space were added during restoration to provide backstage, dressing room and storage areas. The original proscenium remains an important historic feature of the theater.

The Crest also serves as an important venue for other organizations, schools and community groups to present their own productions and presentations. Surrounding the theatre are nine beautifully restored classrooms which now serve as meeting, workshop, reception and class space.
