Welcome to the Carolina Theatre Preservation Society
The Carolina Theatre Preservation Society (CTPS) has been working for over a decade to save and revitalize the historic Carolina Theatre. Within the last three years we have developed pivotal relationships with two new partners, thus enabling us to move forward with this highly-anticipated restoration: Jim Donnelly of the Pursuit Group will develop the property with a very special condo project and give us an operational theatre, but not a restored theatre; and Noah Lazes and Ark Management will manage the theatre with CTPS producing benefit performances during the year.
Our job at CTPS is to raise the funds to restore the original charm of the theatre... sparkling chandeliers, ornamental plaster work, intricate stenciling, atmospheric murals, vintage furniture, revived theatre organ... all the elements that once made the Carolina Theatre an enchanting place.
When the restoration process is complete you will be transported back to 1927, the age of Flappers and Vaudeville.
Over the next several years we are tasked with raising $5 million dollars to bring this dazzling gem of Charlotte history back to life. Please join us in this great effort.
