Old Creamery Theatre in Amana closing doors permanently
Cedar Rapids Gazette: The final curtain has fallen on the Old Creamery Theatre. The not-for-profit professional troupe, founded in Garrison in 1971 and relocated in the former Amana Colonies Welcome Center in 1988, intended to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2021. Instead, the pandemic pause pushed those plans to 2022 — but now, unable to financially sustain its operations, the theater is permanently closing. On Thursday, it returned the building to the Amana Society. “We’ve gone almost two years now, coming up in March, with no productions. We ran out of money,” said Peter Teahen, president of the theater’s board of trustees.
