Construction is officially underway in Saratoga Springs on Universal Preservation Hall.

An 1871 Methodist church will transform into a performing arts education and entertainment venue. The modern community performing arts facility is projected to open in spring 2020.

It will take 9.4 million dollars to construct the state of the art 700-seat in the round performance space.

A public campaign to raise the final $300,000 for the project was also announced today. To learn more about the Universal Preservation Hall renovation and to donate, visit here.
