An Improved Home

Secure a legacy with New Village Arts as we take our next step toward the future! 

As New Village Arts begins a long-awaited exterior and interior renovation of our home on State Street in Carlsbad Village, we are presenting our community with the opportunity to support our growth while securing your legacy as a part of NVA history. 


New Village Arts has been in our current home (originally the Bauer Lumber Yard) for over a decade, thanks to an ongoing and rewarding relationship with the City of Carlsbad. Transformed from the ground up to house our award-winning local theatre, NVA brought a classic flair to this iconic space. However, with NVA’s growth over the past decade and a full rebrand from Raindrop Marketing, a renovation is needed to allow our space to match the quality and professionalism seen on our stage. 


NVA’s planned renovation will bring our historic (and well-loved) building up to date with the clean, modern aesthetic of San Diego’s most influential arts organizations, while retaining echoes of our past (note the exposed wood on the planned exterior–a celebration of the Bauer Lumber Co. and an extension of the beautiful exposed beams located in the NVA lobby). 

Planned interior improvements include: 

  • An improved theatrical space, including new stage floor, rigging, lighting, and sound equipment.
  • Moving the entrance to the corner of State St & Christiansen Way
  • Moving the Box Office to improve safety and accommodate transactions from both inside and outside
  • Relocating and renovating the restrooms and improving accessibility features throughout the building
  • A larger bar and lobby that can accommodate live entertainment and larger events with enhanced seating options
  • A new, dedicated education center and rehearsal space accessible from State St


There are many ways to ensure NVA’s future!
