The First Amphitheatre at UMW was Constructed in 1913

In his book, University of Mary Washington – A Centennial History 1908-2008, Dr. William B. Crawley Jr., said the Amphitheatre is “… an iconic venue in an idyllic corner of the campus…" UMW needs your help now to bring this cherished landmark back to life.

Gifts to the Amphitheatre Challenge are Essential

Funds raised for the Amphitheatre Challenge will be utilized to: restore the Amphitheatre to its historical glory/memory; increase accessibility; upgrade the infrastructure and make it more flexible; add restroom facilities within close proximity; and maintain and enhance the wooded, park-like setting around the facility.

The Amphitheatre is a Part of the Mary Washington Tradition

For more than a century, the open air Amphitheatre has been a vital part of the Mary Washington experience. Located behind Lee and Trinkle Halls, this campus landmark has been the venue of choice for numerous commencements, May Day celebrations, plays, concerts, and even weddings. Through the years, weather and time have contributed to considerable deterioration. Consultants examined the site and recommended the Amphitheatre be restored now or possibly be lost forever. They estimate the restoration to cost $3 million.
