Guest Artist Housing Benefactors

Thank you to the many generous individuals who helped Asolo Rep complete a critical phase of our Capital Campaign: retiring the mortgages on our Guest Artist Housing at the Serenata Condominiums. You’ve helped position Asolo Rep as one of the best regional theatres in the country for guest actors, directors, designers and creative team members to work with our resident team on our world-class productions. Asolo Rep’s block of ten apartments will be renamed The Margot and Warren Coville Guest Artist Housing, to commemorate the Covilles’ leading roles in this very successful initiative.
