The Wagner Theatre Improvement Campaign

The Wagner Theatre, at Ohio University Lancaster is the source of artistic and cultural growth on campus. For nearly 50 years, the theatre has been a venue for year-round theatrical, cultural, academic and artistic opportunities for our community, students and alumni. The time has come when OUL must update and upgrade The Wagner Theatre in order to provide the best experience for our audiences.  To do this OUL has embarked on a $250,000 campaign for The Wagner Theatre Improvement Project.  We are asking for your support in this endeavor.  Every gift makes an impact… EVERY gift!
